GSBA Condemns Reinstatement of Transgender Military Ban

by GSBA
| Jan 22, 2019
Discrimination, bias, harassment and hate against people for who they are is wrong. Today, the US Supreme Court was wrong in continuing to block the participation in our military by transgender Americans. This harms not only our transgender and gender-diverse community, but makes America complicit in perpetuating hate and fear as a result of this decision. When we marginalize and deny full equality under the law to anyone, we all lose. The principles which guide our judicial decision-making are clearly broken, and the result is to not only demoralize one group of people, but it moves to silence the talent and perspectives of transgender and gender-diverse Americans in spaces where they have every right to be.
 
GSBA, Washington State’s LGBTQ chamber of commerce will not sit silently by and accept a decision that goes against our most fundamental belief in justice for all. Today, GSBA affirms our ongoing commitment to fight for the equality and inclusion of our trans and gender-diverse community, as well as any marginalized community whose rights are being denied, threatened, and revoked. Our heartfelt gratitude is with the estimated 15,000 transgender and gender-diverse active-duty service-members currently serving and protecting our country.
 
We encourage our GSBA members to support the local and national organizations working to elevate and advocate for the rights of trans and gender-diverse people. Read more about this case here.
 
In solidarity,
 
GSBA
