Screen Shot 2013-10-20 at 11.54.36 AM

Back in August, we previewed TransMilitary, the web-funded series focusing on the unique struggles of transgender service members on active duty. Now a second clip has been released, this one showcasing the contrast between U.S. transgender military personnel serving under the threat of discharge while their U.K. counterparts serve openly as equals within their armed forces. 

Screen Shot 2013-10-20 at 11.58.04 AMInterviewees include former Executive Director of OutServe-SLDN Allyson Robinson, who also serves as a consultant on the series, and U.K. transgender activist Jacqui Gavin.


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

  1. If I become half-trans, keep my man part but grow breasts... oh, never mind. These trans issues are just killing me. I wish a simple gay and lesbian movement didn't have to get all wrapped up in trans, questioning, intersex and asexual identities. It's like a smorgasbord now. Everybody and their brother is hithcing a ride.

  2. The good news, "Will", is that since gay men like you are the most pathetic and cowardly wimps in our community, your asinine opinions will never be taken seriously.

    I hope these "trans issues" continue to kill you until you're six feet under, so the world will be rid of you and that vacant lot you call a mind.

    Allyson Robinson is a gem - LOVE her. She's a force to be reckoned with, and her intelligent articulation of these issues could only be dismissed by a complete idiot.

    Canada and the UK have figured this stuff out, and it's about time the US caught up.
