Federal judge blocks Trump’s Trans military ban

Washington, D.C. - President Donald Trump’s Twitter-originated ban on transgender military members has suffered a major setback. U.S. District Judge Colleen Kollar-Kotelly ruled on October 30 that the August directive barring transgender individuals from serving in the military encourages “inherent inequality.” She partially granted an injunction requested by the National Center for Lesbian Rights and GLBTQ Legal Advocates & Defenders, who are leading a suit against the directive. The Judge’s ruling halts the ban as the suit moves forward. In issuing her ruling, the judge noted that the transgender plaintiffs NCLR and GLAD represent are “likely to succeed” in proving their claim that the ban violates trans individuals’ constitutional right to due process.

At any good party, no man’s an island. Neither is Rhode Island!

Traveling to Providence, Rhode Island, from Baltimore is easy and very affordable. Several discount airlines fly to Boston, and from Boston’s airport the Silver Line (public bus that runs partly underground like a subway) goes to South Station, a train station, where Amtrak offers tickets to Providence for as little as $14. Providence is the capital of Rhode Island, the smallest state. Providence is geographically very compact because it was developed prior to the automobile. It is a densely populated city with a beautiful river walkway in the middle that separates part of the city from areas where higher education institutions are located. Brown University, the Rhode Island School of Design, and Johnson and Wales University are located in Providence. Although there are many things to love about Providence, the three that standout are its history, its WaterPlace Park, and its LGBT progressive movements.
