The US Supreme Court has decided to allow a plan that restricts transgender people’s ability to serve in the military. Until a few years ago, service members could be discharged for being transgender. That changed in 2016 under former president Barack Obama, when it was decided that transgender individuals already serving would be allowed to do so openly, while new transgender individuals could enlist from July 2017. But after Donald Trump took office, the administration delayed the enlistment date, saying the issue needed further study. While hundreds of existing transgender service members can continue working, transgender people can't join up.
