#1 Navy to allow off-duty trans sailors to dress in accordance with gender identity by Cincinnatus 11.04.2019 17:08


The Navy will reportedly allow transgender sailors to dress in accordance with their gender identity while off duty. The dress code clarification comes as the military prepares to roll out a controversial new policy on Friday restricting the service of openly transgender people.

The Navy will permit all transgender service members to “live socially” as “their preferred gender” when they are not in uniform, according to a Tuesday report in Military.com. In an administrative message sent to troops earlier this week, officials claim no standing policy exists that “prohibits the ability of a service member to express themselves off-duty in their preferred gender.”

“Appropriate civilian attire, as outlined in the uniform regulations, will not be determined based on gender,” the message states.
