Transgender veterans will be offered gender confirmation surgery paid for by the US Department of Veterans’ Affairs, its secretary announced Saturday. Denis McDonough told an event in Orlando to celebrate Pride Month that the move was ‘the right thing to do’.He spoke a week after the fifth anniversary of the Pulse nightclub shooting in the Florida city, which saw 49 people killed at the gay bar.ADVERTISINGMcDonough said the new policy was part of an effort to overcome a ‘dark history’ of discrimination against LGBTQ service members.Gender confirmation surgery used to be known as gender reassignment surgery, and involves changing a trans person’s body to align with the gender they identify as. The cost was of the program unclear, but Terrence Hayes, VA spokesman, told The Washington Post that they expect fewer than 4,000 people to take up the offer.
