New Web Series Opens a Window into the Lives of Transgender Military Service Members: VIDEO

Celotto

TransMilitary, a new web series featuring the lives of transgender service members on active duty premiered today, as mainstream news tackled, sometimes with many questions, the story of Chelsea Manning (formerly Bradley) and her announcement that she planned to transition.

MilitaryThe plight of transgender service members has for many years been overshadowed by the struggle to defeat the military's "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, but trans service members are still not allowed to serve openly.

The new web series, produced by Tony award-winning producer Gregory Rae, Fiona Dawson, Tyrus Emory, and Zeke Stokes, and hosted by Dawson, will look at transphobia in America and plans to bring into focus the discrimination faced by some of those serving our country.

Interviewed in the first episode are Bryce Celotto, a currently serving transgender soldier risking discharge with his participation, and former Executive Director of OutServe-SLDN Allyson Robinson, who also serves as a consultant on the series.

Check out the first episode, AFTER THE JUMP...

  1. You're hired killers that we send off to kill nations of brown people.

    I don't CARE about your "plight".

  2. @franklyvulgar It's hard to determine from your post if you are anti-military and also transphobic?

  3. I'm not "transphobic".

    I have a great deal of respect for trans people that don't play the role of hired killers for an abusive government that doesn't care about them, or anything, other than global corporate protectionism.

  4. Probably not a good time to bring this up.

  5. Perfect timing, "ladies"!

    Lol! The highest profile "trans" soldier in history is now serving a 35 year prison sentence. The odds for trans service are looking good!

    And topping off this disaster is Allyson Robinson as the hired "consultant." Allyson comes to the show with great experience in driving an organization into bankruptcy in 9 short months!

    Loooool!!
