. . . TransMilitary . . .

Building upon the short New York Times op-doc, Transgender, at War an in Love (2015), this feature documents the lives of four American active duty transgender troops who are advocating to end the ban on their service. The film gives insight into their familial, personal and professional lives, which represent approximately 15,500 transgender service members within America’s all-volunteer military. After a series of secret meetings with top brass officials inside the Pentagon, their policy battle is won. But President Trump’s tweets in 2017 flip their lives upside down yet again, leaving them with the question of if they will be finally granted the right to serve.
