American Medical Center Corroborates SF State Palm Center Studies on Transgender Military Service

Monday, June 15, 2015
THE ADVOCATE -- In an unexpected decision Thursday, the U.S. Air Force became the first branch of the nation’s military to announce that their trans service members will no longer face the risk “separation” — release from active duty — simply for openly identifying as transgender or receiving a diagnosis of gender dysphoria. Further, the American Medical Association officially declared Monday that there is “no medically valid reason to exclude transgender individuals from service in the U.S. military,” corroborating a series of large studies from San Francisco State University’s Palm Center.
