Around 15,500 transgender people serve in the U.S. military where they must conceal their gender identity because military policies still discriminate. Transmilitary chronicles the lives of four of these individuals (Senior Airman Logan Ireland, Corporal Laila Villanueva, Captain Jennifer Peace & First Lieutenant El Cook) defending their country’s freedom while fighting for their own. They put their careers and their families’ livelihoods on the line by coming out as transgender to top brass officials in the Pentagon in hopes of attaining the equal right to serve.
