Dustin from San Francisco writes: “Chris, I am outraged that Trump has banned transgender people from serving in the military. Is this constitutional?”
Thank you Dustin for your timely question. I share your outrage. I am proud to have championed transgender rights. I have assisted courageous transgender persons in safeguarding their rights and ending discriminatory policies and practices by the government, professional associations, hospitals and employers. My clients have shared with me the pain and emotional turmoil they have suffered from being marginalized and treated unfairly because of their gender identity.
