This Is What It’s Like to Come Out as Trans in the Army

The U.S. military is entering a new era of open service for transgender troops. In January, President Biden reversed his predecessor’s ban on trans service members, and the Pentagon recently released a protocol for those who want to medically transition while serving.

VICE News meets one trans woman as she prepares to come out to her commander.
