Furious protests erupt in New York, Washington, DC, and San Francisco after Trump bans transgender people from the military


Hundreds of angry protesters took to the streets of New York City, Washington, DC, and San Francisco on Wednesday night after President Donald Trump announced his shocking ban on transgender people serving in the armed forces, calling the cost of transgender healthcare in the military as a ‘burden’.

Crowds gathered at a plaza named after the late San Francisco gay rights activist Harvey Milk to protest Trump’s ban.

Demonstrators waved pink and blue flags and held signs bearing slogans: ‘Trans lives are not a burden.’ As they took to the streets and gathered in front of the plaza, they could be heard chanting: ‘Stand up! Fight back!’
