Time: All Day
Location: The DC Center for the LGBT Community
Happy Veterans Day from the team at the DC Center.
The Center will be closed in observance of Veterans Day. All programs are cancelled except any veterans day memorial type event, see our events page.
Normal operating hours and programming will resume on Thursday, November 12, 2020.
Today we celebrate our vets who have placed their lives on the line to protect the homeland. To show your respect, you can post images of our LGBT+ heroes on your social media pages. We would also like to take a look at how the current administrations policies may affect future LGBT heroes from joining the our military. The Trump administration stated that transgendered people with gender dysphoria — that is, who feel their emotional and psychological identity to be the opposite of their biological sex — will be disqualified from military service, except in specific circumstances. The White House said retaining troops with a history or diagnosis of “gender dysphoria” — those who may require substantial medical treatment — “presents considerable risk to military effectiveness and lethality.”
