A number of transgendersoldaten from the U.s. army paraded Sunday night on the red carpet prior to the MTV Video Music Awards. The station invited the soldiers as a reaction to the decision by the Us president, Trump for transgender people will now have to fend off the American army.

Four soldiers and two veterans from the army, air force and the navy ran together with representatives of the American LHBTI organizations GLAAD and SPARTA on the red carpet.

“It doesn’t matter who you are, our country is only safe if the best and brightest people in our armed forces,” said captain Jennifer Peace, who stressed that the army should be open to everyone that his country wants to serve and defend. The soldiers were by the audience with loud applause.

Political statement

It is not the first time that the VMA’s used to be a political statement to make. In 2016, it took the singer Beyoncé to a group of women that their sons were lost as a result of violent police action. In 2010, Lady Gaga a group of homosexual soldiers, who were discharged from the army as a result of the then-current ban on gays in the American armed forces.

“MTV has the transgendersoldaten invited and we would feel it as an honour when they come,” said director Christopher McCarthy previously at CNN. “Every patriot who is willing to stake his life sets for our freedom and equality, is a hero for MTV, and young people everywhere.”
