The Nevada National Guard will continue to allow transgender people to serve.
Even as the Trump administration’s transgender troop ban enters its second full week of being in effect, two states—California and New Mexico—have said that transgender people will continue to be able to serve in their National Guard organizations.
The Daily Beastcan now confirm that Nevada is joining California and New Mexico.
“The State of Nevada does not discriminate against anyone, including and especially service members, based on gender identity or expression,” Helen Kalla, communications director for Nevada Gov. Steve Sisolak, told The Daily Beast. “Governor Sisolak believes the only criteria to serve in the Nevada National Guard is one’s readiness to serve.”
