April 12 - A Sad Day

The last legal obstacle to the Trump administration ban on transgender individuals serving in the military has fallen, and the administration plans to begin enforcing the ban as of April 12.  In January, the U.S. Supreme Court lifted two of the injunctions preventing the ban from taking effect and the last remaining preliminary injunction has now been dissolved.  

The U.S. House of Representatives passed a non-binding resolution condemning the ban, calling it "unfair discrimination" and "harmful to national security".   The measure is not expected to be taken
up in the Senate

Support Your Transgender Child

Having a child come out as transgender is a big adjustment for all family members.  Support your child by educating yourself, using their desired name and pronoun, and following their lead.  Most important, tell them that you've got their back and that you love them just the way they are.

VCU to Offer New Minor in Queer Studies

Starting in the fall of 2019, Virginia Commonwealth University is launching a new minor in LGBTQ + and queer studies.  According to associate professor Liz Canfield, "students will learn how to examine LGBTQ+ and queer topics across disciplines, cultures, and historical periods."  The minor requires 18 credits, at least nine of which must be upper level.

Well done,VCU!
