Introduction

The United States Navy values diversity and recognizes that through inclusion we are a better military and stronger nation for it. This means that, like all other qualified citizens, Sailors who are gay, lesbian, bisexual and/or transgender shall be evaluated based on individual merit, fitness and performance. It is the policy of the Department of Defense to treat all service members in a professional and neutral manner regardless of sexual orientation to ensure maintenance of good order and discipline.

Regarding transgender service members, the Department of Defense has published DoD INSTRUCTION 1300.28 on 4 September 2020 detailing guidelines around policy, responsibilities and procedures regarding the standards for military service accession, retention, separation, in-service transition and medical care for Service members who are transgender or who have been diagnosed with gender dysphoria, as applicable.
