Presidential candidate Amy Klobuchar sat down to talk about trans issues & what she'd do about them

Presidential hopeful Amy Klobuchar (D-MN) sat down with Mara Keisling, the head of the National Center for Transgender Equality, to talk about her commitment to transgender issues.

Klobuchar hails from Minnesota, which, she proudly notes, was, “the first state, in the early 1990s, that actually had an anti-discrimination law that included trans people.”

“I was always understanding of some of the trans issues,” said Klobuchar, “and was appalled of course by what’s been going on lately with this president going backwards in terms of patriotic trans members of our country wanting to simply serve in the military, and then he bans them from doing it — which is one of the first things I put in for my first 100 days when I am president, I’m going to reverse that.”

The issue of transgender rights has been very much on the table this election season, particularly with the Trump Administration continuing to attack LGBTQ rights, including the transgender military ban.
