'Transparent' Gets New Trailer And Issues Strong Words On Trump's Transgender Military Ban

"We are outraged."
The new season of Transparent could not come sooner to this world. At this stage, you don't need any convincing to watch Jill Soloway's genius / the most in-touch series to ever pass through our HDMI cables. 
 
Along with the new trailer, the show's cast and crew have released some very strong words aimed at Donald Trump via People. Following his incredibly insensitive Twitter spew and the subsequent banning of transgender people from the military, the people over at Transparent have written this:
 
"Sharing this work amidst President Trump's continued assault on the transgender community is painful. We are outraged that he announced in a tweet that transgender people would not be allowed to serve 'in any capacity' in the U.S. military. It is reprehensible to deny an estimated 15,000 current trans service members, and 134,000 trans veterans, the dignity, respect and safety that they deserve…At Transparent we believe in the integrity of the trans community, which we know firsthand because we are all either trans or allies to the trans community. It is a revolutionary act for a trans person to simply leave the house and walk down the street. We tap into the incredible history of survival the trans community has achieved against all odds, knowing that our fight is noble and on the side of justice and human rights."
 
Transparent season 4 premiers September 22.
