| A Powerful and Timely Story about the Complex Challenges facing Transgendered Soldiers
TransMilitary was very well-received in its world premiere at Austin's SXSW Film Festival. It splices together the stories of 4 of the approximately 15,000 transgendered soldiers serving in the U.S. military. It tells their very human and complicated stories of their struggle to end the ban on transgendered individuals serving in the U.S. military. The film is beautifully told and skillfully edited. While clearly advocating for their inclusion, it doesn't shy away from addressing the complexity of their situations. Many of us were taught to see sexuality in simple binary terms. Films like this educate by allow us to break down the simple male/female dichotomy and explore the complicated and deeply misunderstood gray area in-between. The tragedy of the tale is that the progress that was being made under the Obama administration has been reversed by the close-minded bigotry of the current administration. Not surprisingly, it won the SXSW Audience Award in the Documentary Feature Competition. This film is highly recommended to all who are willing to watch it with an open-mind.
