TransMilitary

Key topics
Gender Identity
Former U.S. Military Ban
Stories of Transgender Service Members

 

In October 2012, knowing that transgender people were still prohibited from serving in the U.S. military, Fiona Dawson started the TransMilitary project to share their stories in the hopes of influencing change. On Thursday June 30, 2016 Secretary of Defense Ash Carter ended the ban on their service, but with ongoing violence, stigma and discrimination against transgender individuals in society, the TransMilitary project's work continues.

This presentation works well with a screening of the 13 minute Emmy® nominated short film, "Transgender, at War and in Love."
