US lifts ban on transgender members in its military

The US military has lifted its ban on transgender members serving openly in the country’s armed forces.

The policy, which will allow members to transition gender while serving and will set standards for medical care, will be phased in over a year.

Transgender individuals will be able to enlist in one year, as long as they have been “stable” in their identified gender for 18 months.

Defence Secretary, Ash Carter said there are about 2,500 transgender people serving in a total force of about 1.3 million people.
