The Pentagon announced changes to its policies for transgender members in the military.

The new policy prohibits discrimination based on a person's gender identity.

It also provides medical treatment and gender transition services for an individual's self-identified gender.

The changes come following a two-month review ordered by President Biden to avoid policies that could be discriminating.

The changes take effect in 30 days.
