TransMilitary follows the lives of four individuals (Senior Airman Logan Ireland, Corporal Laila Villanueva, Captain Jennifer Peace & First Lieutenant El Cook). They put their careers and their families’ livelihoods on the line by coming out as transgender to top brass officials in the Pentagon in hopes of attaining the equal right to serve. The ban was lifted in 2016, but with President Trump now trying to reinstate it, their futures hang in the balance again.
This film screens with captions and the Q&A will be Auslan interpreted.
TransMilitary is rated M and is suitable for people aged 15 and over. Young people under 15 must be accompanied by an adult/parent/guardian.
