    A new report estimates banning transgender service members would set the U.S. back $960 million, challenging President Donald Trump's pro-ban argument about "the tremendous medical costs" associated with permitting transgender people to serve in the military. The report, co-authored by the Palm Center and current and retired professors at the Naval Postgraduate School, estimates the cost to replace transgender service members would be 100 times greater than current estimates for the annual cost of providing them transition-related care. "President Trump said that he wants to fire honorably serving transgender troops in order to save money, but that begs the question,...

    The Trump resistance movement cheered when Democratic attorneys general in several states sued to block the president’s plan to bar travelers from some Muslim majority countries. But with far less fanfare in the months since, an emboldened coalition of Democratic state attorneys general has unleashed a torrent of lower-profile litigation they argue is necessary to protect public health, the environment and consumers from a Republican White House. State attorneys from Massachusetts to New York to California, often working together, have brought more than 40 legal actions against the Trump administration over the last seven months. The pace, which both parties...

    The process and decision behind transitioning into the opposite sex can often be a testing time in a person’s life. But what if you were not happy with how you felt in your new body? This is the dilemma faced by Ria Cooper, who is preparing to undergo gender reassignment for a third time, after she found that she wasn’t happy with her previous reassignments. She was the youngest person to undergo gender reassignment at just 15 years old when she was called Brad.

    Five active-duty service members sued President Trump Wednesday over his intentions to ban transgender personnel from serving in the military. “The directive to reinstate a ban on open service by transgender people violates both the Equal Protection component of the Fifth Amendment and the Due Process Clause of the Fifth Amendment to the United States Constitution,” states the suit filed in U.S. District Court in Washington by five anonymous “Jane Does.” They are represented by the National Center for Lesbian Rights (NCLR) and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders (GLAD).

    One of Britain’s most famous transgender personalities is swapping genders for the third time in eight years. Brad Cooper became the U.K.’s youngest person to undergo a gender swap at only 15 years old, when he claimed he believed he was a girl stuck in a boy’s body. Doctors began pumping Brad’s body full of hormone therapy to stop puberty and trigger breast growth, sparking a widespread debate on whether 15 was too young for a person to make such a life-altering medical decision. Turns out that it just might be. According to a profile in the U.K. Mirror, the...

    EL CERRITO, Calif. (AP) — In some ways, California’s Rainbow Day Camp is very conventional, with kids making friendship bracelets, playing basketball and singing songs. But in other ways, it’s extraordinary unique. The day camp in El Cerrito, in the San Francisco Bay Area, caters to transgender and “gender fluid’ children, ages 4 to 12. Experts say it’s one of the only camps of its kind in the world open to preschoolers. Rainbow officials say the camp gives kids a safe, fun place to be themselves. The camp’s enrollment has tripled since it opened in 2015, and plans are underway...

    TEXAS -- One of the most eloquent opponents of Texas' proposed gender bathroom law began identifying as a girl four years ago, when she was 3. It was at that age that Frank and Rachel Gonzales started to realize their child, Libby, wasn't living the life she was born to live. It wasn't always clear to them how best to support their first born. While on a family trip to California, Rachel took Libby -- then still called by her birth name -- to the toy store. It was there that things "came to a boil." "I said, 'You can...

    More than 50 House Democrats are urging the Pentagon not to comply with President Trump’s “unconstitutional” ban on transgender troops. “As members of Congress with an abiding interest in our nation’s military and its policies towards the LGBTQ community, we write to not only express our strong opposition to President Trump’s recent tweets seeking to ban transgender individuals from the military, but to remind you not to comply with any unconstitutional directive which may ultimately be issued,” the 53 lawmakers wrote to Defense Secretary James Mattis and Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff Gen. Joseph Dunford in a letter...

    Lena Dunham is calling out American Airlines after the actress claimed to have overheard two apparent employees engaged in "transphobic talk." The "Girls" creator said her flight on another airline was delayed for hours Wednesday at New York City's John F. Kennedy International Airport. Dunham, 31, wrote that the "worst part of this night" waiting at the airport came when she overheard two American Airlines' "attendants having a transphobic talk." "At this moment in history we should be teaching our employees about love and inclusivity @AmericanAir," she added in a subsequent tweet. "That was worst part of this night." Dunham...

    A retired Navy SEAL Team 6 hero who is transgender had a message for President Donald Trump after he announced the US military would bar transgender people from serving. "Let's meet face to face and you tell me I'm not worthy," Kristin Beck, a 20-year veteran of the Navy SEALs, told Business Insider on Wednesday. "Transgender doesn't matter. Do your service." Beck said Trump's abrupt change in policy could negatively affect many currently or wanting to serve in the military. The RAND Corporation estimated in 2016 that there were between 1,320 and 6,630 transgender people serving. Many of them just...

    An individual CNN labels a "transgender man" – i.e., a woman who thinks surgery, some medically added hormones, and saying so makes it so transform her into a man – has given birth to a baby who is (arbitrarily assigned?) the gender "boy."   Reese, who was assigned the female gender at birth, posted a video in March explaining his decision to carry a baby as a transgender man [sic]. "I'm OK with my body being a trans body," he [sic] said. "I'm OK being a man [sic] who has a uterus and has the capacity and capability of carrying a baby."  Reese told CNN in June that...

    A sudden, even shocking announcement came from President Trump's Twitter account on July 26. The government "will not accept or allow ... Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity" in the military due to "the tremendous medical costs and disruption" that entails. Whether you favor it or oppose it, and regardless of how this abrupt declaration blindsided the Pentagon brass, it's indisputable that the liberal media could not and would not approach this subject with anything resembling objectivity. Never mind that military men and women -- and that's all we should care about -- cheered the announcement. The press...

Paul Zukunft. “The first thing we did is we reached out to all 13 members of the Coast Guard who have come out” as transgender, Zukunft told attendees at a Center for Strategic and International Studies event in Washington. Zukunft said he contacted Lt. Taylor Miller, the Coast Guard’s first openly transitioning officer who was featured in a Washington Post article last week. “If you read that story,...
