Today, PFLAG National released the following statement from Interim Executive Director Beth Kohm, in response to tweets from the President regarding a change in policy around transgender military service.

"In today’s military, there are brave transgender people serving our country openly and proudly with 134,000 retired veterans having done so with honor and sacrifice. The Commander-in-Chief demeans them with his latest tweetstorm proclamations. PFLAG stands proudly with them, their families and future transgender individuals who would put their lives at risk for all of us and our country. We urge everyone to call their federal elected officials and protest this dishonorable and offensive action."
