TransMilitary

May 16, 7:15 PM

Free – $5

Post-screening discussion with Kyle Knight of Human Rights Watch and Katherine (Katie) Taylor, USCG veteran and founder of the Kennebec Valley Queer Coalition

TransMilitary chronicles the lives of four individuals 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. The ban was lifted in 2016, but with President Trump now trying to reinstate it, their futures hang in the balance again. Audience Award Winner: Best Documentary, SXSW Film Festival. (Unrated, 93 min.)

Admission: $5 for adults, free for students.

Sponsored by the Mid-Maine Global Forum.
