MQFF: TransMilitary

Documentary


 

A documentary chronicling the lives of four troops who are forced to conceal their gender identity to serve their country.

Equally heartwarming and frustrating, "Transmilitary" is an informative examination on the ban of transgender personnel in the military. The film's core subjects are awe-inspiring, diverse and most importantly, impart a sense of hopefulness despite the current climate. It's an important documentary to view, an insightful glimpse into the lives of transgender people that bears witness to the repercussions of constantly having to overcome adversity in both personal and professional life; and the effect that it has on those around them. Yes, Sir.
