Military Service by Transgender People: Data from the 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey. , 2015

From the report: “The 2015 U.S. Transgender Survey (USTS) is the largest survey examining the experiences of transgender people in the United States, with 27,715 respondents nationwide. The USTS was conducted by the National Center for Transgender Equality in the summer of 2015, when transgender people were banned from serving in the military. In 2016, the military changed that policy to allow transgender people to serve openly. However, President Trump announced in 2017 that a ban on transgender service members would be put back in place, a decision that is being challenged by several lawsuits.”
