On Friday, Donald Trump directed the U.S. military not to accept transgender men and women as recruits. A memo the president signed also stops the use of government funds for sex-reassignment surgeries for active military personnel unless the process is already underway. According to a White House official, the memo declined to specify whether transgender service men and women who are currently active in the military could continue to serve. The order now requires U.S. Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis to determine how to handle transgender individuals currently serving in the military in the coming months.
