It is also important to keep in mind that the DADT repeal only protects service members from discharge based on sexual orientation. The Servicemembers Legal Defense Network (SLDN) and the National Center for Transgender Equality (NCTE) urge transgender service members to examine the implications if they choose to come out to fellow service members. Read More Here
