US Air Force: Being Transgender no Longer Grounds for Discharge

The US air force is centralizing the way it handles the discharge of transgender personnel from its ranks. In a move that forms part of the military’s inching toward a more permissive approach to gender dysphoria, the air force said in a statement released Thursday that among enlisted airmen, there were no outright grounds for discharge for anyone with gender dysphoria or self-identifying as transgender. An individual would only be subject to eviction from the air force if his or her condition interfered with their potential deployment or performance on active duty.
