Today, U.S. Representative Mike Quigley (IL-05), who serves as Vice Chair of the LGBT Equality Caucus and a founding Member of the Transgender Equality Task Force, released the following statement after the House passed a resolution condemning President Trump’s ban on transgender individuals serving in the military:

“Transgender Americans have served in the military with honor and distinction.
