The military is the largest employer of transgender people in the United States. Amid rapidly changing policies that technically at present bans them from serving, 15,500 troops identify as transgender. TransMilitary documents four brave men and women who risk their families’ livelihoods by coming out to the Pentagon’s top brass in the hope of attaining the equal right to serve. With a new commander-in-chief at the helm, they must traverse a series of successes and defeats, as their careers hang in the balance. Audience Award for Documentary, South by Southwest Film Festival 2018.

All attendees are invited to stay after the screening for a Q&A with Laila Villanueva, film subject and membership director at SPART*A, Maurice Garcia, MD, Director of the Transgender Surgery and Health Program at Cedars-Sinai, and Kyle Knight, LGBT Researcher for Human Rights Watch, moderated by Martine McDonald, Director of Programs at Journeys in Film. The panel reception will be followed by a reception with tacos and drinks.
