Enlisting in the U.S. Military as a transgender individual can not only be stressful and mentally trying, it can also end your career.
Despite the repeal of Dont Ask, Don’t Tell, transgender soldiers can still be discharged without voluntary disclosure
Kristen Beck, the first out trans Navy Seal, said of her difficult coming out process in June:
A new documentary series, TransMilitary, hopes to shine a light on transphobia in the United States with true stories from transgender members of the military.
This project is timely, following the media storm surrounding Private Chelsea Manning's very public transition.
In a new teaser for the series, host Fiona Dawson spoke with several transgender service members about their time in active duty.
The project will be composed of six short unscripted episodes, as well as a full-length documentary.
