BREAKING: Federal court rules that our preliminary injunction against @realDonaldTrump’s #TransMilitaryBan must stay in place/ #LGBTQ…
The court handed us a significant victory on a number of fronts tonight, while also denying a part of our summary judgment motion. The court also clearly did not buy that @realDonaldTrump & @VP’s implementations “plan” from 3/23 is new.
“The Court also rules that, because transgender people have long been subjected to systemic oppression and forced to live in silence, they are a protected class.”


This is a legal gem from tonight’s ruling. The court ruled that transgender people are a protected class.
This is a huge rebuke of the government’s position. The court has made clear that the most demanding level of scrutiny must be met for a law that targets trans people the way that this policy does.
The court *also* ruled that all of our amazing individual and organizational plaintiffs have standing, as does the state of WA. Additionally, it rejected @TheJusticeDept’s motion to dissolve the preliminary injunction, which continues to protect folks as the case continues!
Our case with @OutServeSLDN will now proceed with discovery. This is a win for us and for everyone fighting this unconstitutional ban. We have no doubt that in the end we will prevail.
The most important thing to remember here is this:


If you are trans, know that we’ve got your back. You are perfect. And we won’t stop fighting for you.
