Around 15,500 transgender people serve in the U.S. military (notably the largest transgender employer in the U.S.), where they must conceal their gender identity because military policies ban their service. The documentary chronicles the lives of four individuals, Senior Airman Logan Ireland, Corporal Laila Villanueva, Captain Jennifer Peace and First Lieutenant El Cook, who defend their country’s freedom while fighting for their own. 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. 

TransMilitary is gut wrenching, funny, poignant... It’s an example of documentary making at its finest. It’s urgent and unmissable. Do yourself a favour and see it.” Melbourne Queer Film Festival
