Coming Out Transgender on Active Duty


What's it like coming out transgender while on active duty in the military? The US Military tends to be a conservative place where traditional gender roles are the norm, where comformity is required and where the rights LGBT service members have been a decades-long political hotspot. In this episode, the Gender Rebels talk with Elizabeth about her time in the US Navy, about coming out transgender while serving in the armed forced and about her experiences, service and transition.
