“TransMilitary” Documentary to Make TV Debut on Logo

The award-winning film festival favorite will debut November 15 on the cable net.

Logo continues its slate of award-winning documentaries with the television premiere of TransMilitary, a documentary following four trans individuals as they navigate their lives and careers while serving in the U.S. military.

“With the pending threat against transgender service members, we felt it was important to present a film that highlights the extraordinary sacrifice these individuals make in the name of protecting their country,” said Taj Paxton, VP of Logo Documentary Films. “No one should be told that they’re unfit to serve because of their gender, sexual orientation, race or religion, and we’re proud to be able to support these brave men and women in their fight for freedom.”

In the announcement director Gabriel Silverman and co-director Fiona Dawson said: “As President Trump’s administration continues to try to reinstate the ban through the courts, it’s more critical now than ever that people get to hear first hand from the men and women in our armed forces who are directly affected by this policy.”

TransMilitary is the latest documentary to premiere on Logo. Light in the Water, Quiet Heroes, and When the Beat Drops all debuted on the cable net earlier this year. Last year’s Kevyn Aucoin: Beauty & The Beast In Me won an Outstanding Special Class Special Daytime Emmy.

Directed by Gabriel Silverman, and co-directed by Fiona Dawson, TransMilitary won the SXSW Audience Award and received honorable mention at this year’s Outfest. The film will premiere Thursday, November 15 at 8/7c on Logo.
