NYC protestors take the streets against Trump’s traveling ban

MANHATTAN, NY — This protest on Wednesday evening grew organically, organizers say, through social media.

It was a response to these tweets from President Donald Trump announcing a ban on transgender people from military service.

According to a 2016 Rand Corporation study commissioned by the Pentagon, up to 6,700 active-duty troops are transgender service members.

“WE do have friends who served and transitioned after they served. So this issue affect our friends, and it affects us personally being members of the LGBTQ community, but we are standing up today for our trans community to let them know that we have their backs,” said Mohammad Amin.

Very little has been revealed on how this policy will be implemented, while thousands of men and women who identify themselves as transgender and serve in the military, are left wondering what will happen.
