A screening of the documentary "TransMilitary" will be followed by a panel discussion with community members, including transgender veteran Monica Helms.

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.”TransMilitary” chronicles the lives of four individuals (Senior Airman Logan Ireland, Corporal Laila Villanueva, Captain Jennifer Peace & First Lieutenant El Cook) defending 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. Directed by Gabriel Silverman and Fiona Dawson.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion with community members, including transgender veteran Monica Helms.

This free event is co-sponsored by Out On Film, Atlanta’s lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) film festival. One of the oldest and largest such festivals in the country, Out On Film kicks off its 32nd annual festival Sept. 26 – Oct. 6, 2019.
