Biden Will ‘Direct the U.S. Department of Defense to Allow Transgender Service Members to Serve Openly’

Former Vice President Joe Biden says that if he becomes president he will restore the policy followed during the Obama Administration that allowed transgender individuals to serve openly in the U.S. military.

“In June 2016, the Obama-Biden Administration overturned the ban on transgender individuals serving openly, without hiding their gender identity,” says “The Biden Plan to Advance LGBTQ+ Equality in America and Around the World,” which is posted on Biden’s campaign website.

“But Trump reversed this policy, barring transgender patriots from serving openly,” says the Biden plan.
