At the risk of being discharged and losing their livelihoods, trans service members come out to top brass at the Pentagon to challenge the transgender military ban. From 2015 to the present day, we follow four trans service members—Senior Airman Logan Ireland, Corporal Laila Ireland, Captain Jennifer Peace, and First Lieutenant El Cook—as they fight to defend their equal right to serve their country. This screening will be followed by a conversation with the filmmakers and subjects, moderated by Zeke Stokes, Vice President of Programs, GLAAD.
