Lady Gaga Has A Message For Trump About His Transgender Military Ban And Fans Are With Her

Trump banned transgender Americans from serving in the military on Wednesday, July 26. After the announcement, celebrities have been reacting to the trans military ban news and expressing their support for transgender people.

Lady Gaga, who has long been a longtime activist for LGBT rights, was one of the most vocal artists to comment on the ban.

In a series of five tweets to Trump and the public, she mentioned that transgender people are “strong and brave” and “should be able to serve if they wish,” she pointed out that Trump’s seeming bias against transgender individuals could have a negative effect on their mental well-being.

“The message you have just sent has endangered the lives of people all over the United States and overseas bravely serving in the Military,” she wrote. She also tweeted, “Sincerely, did you know of the group you singled out today, 45% of them ages (18 to 24) have attempted suicide already?” she wrote.”
