Meet the Only Transgender Man on Reality TV Today: VIDEO


Dennis Croft, a “Lieutenant” at a security firm in Ringgold, Georgia, is the only transgender man on a reality program currently on the air. He was profiled last night on AMC's Small Town Security.

GLAAD writes:

In the pilot, The Chief, who anchored a public access television talk show five years ago, yearns to return to her hosting duties but differences with the station’s management have prevented her from doing so.  After some negotiations, she convinces UCTV to allow her to return.  Her first guest is JJK Security employee “Lieutenant” Dennis Croft who oversees and trains the security officers at the company.  Five years ago, on The Chief’s show, Croft came out as transgender to the small Georgia community.  As he returns to television, in a moving interview he comes out to Small Town Security viewers, telling everyone that transitioning allowed him to “feel free.”

Check out a clip from the show, AFTER THE JUMP...

GLAAD interviews Croft on its blog today.

  1. There's a transgender man on this year's Big Brother, but it's in the UK so I guess it doesn't really count...

  2. Yeah except it does! UKBB's Luke A is transgender. In fact it's been nice that everyone constantly gets the correct gender pronoun. Also in heated fights they still refer to him positively and derogatorily as a man. It's cool.

  4. Congrats Dennis. Like the xian said, It's an abomination no to be yourself. Hopefully he learned what that really means.

  5. I take it you only would date straight women. I think your missing out on a very important aspect of life. I know how you feel about your boss,but that is not going to lead to anything. I could be wrong but I think you need to be happy.
