Commissioned by The New York Times and produced by TransMilitary creator Fiona Dawson in partnership with Gabriel Silverman and Jamie Coughlin of SideXSide Studios, Transgender, at War and in Love was released June 4, 2015 as part of The Times’ editorial series Transgender Today.

In this 12 minute documentary, SPARTA members Logan Ireland (Air Force) and his fiancee, Laila Villanueva (Army) came out publicly as being transgender.

Ireland, 27, and Villanueva, 29, have a combined 16 years of service, four deployments to Afghanistan and Iraq, and have received awards and commendations for their work. Yet Department of Defense medical readiness regulations prohibit their open service and classify them as unfit to serve.


SPARTA: Founded in 2013, SPARTA is an association of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people who currently serve or have served in the U.S. armed forces and their families. Our mission is to advocate for and support our actively serving LGBT service members, veterans, and their families. As a membership organization, SPARTA exists by and for the LGBT military community. The name SPARTA originated as an acronym for “Service members, Partners, and Allies for Respect and Tolerance for All.” –

Damned in Dixie Blues (By Walter Beck)

One for all the brothers and sisters down in North Carolina, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee, and Mississippi

Damned in Dixie Blues
(By Walter Beck)
North Carolina dug their tar heels in
And burned forty-two thousand dollars
Just to make sure we couldn’t use their bathrooms;
Putting up “Cis Only” signs
From the mountains to the Atlantic.

Georgia zeroed their sights in,
Getting ready to pull the trigger
And tell us all,
“You queers ain’t welcome here!”

Mississippi made it known
That we wouldn’t be served
In the Hospitality State;
As they put it plain and clear
That they don’t have to marry us.
They don’t have to serve us.
They don’t have to recognize we even exist.

South Carolina followed down
Hot the tar heels step;
Posting their own “Cis Only” signs
On all the schoolhouse johns.

Tennessee doubles down
On one long bloody night;
Closing their mental health facilities
In our faces
And locking the bathroom doors
Behind them.

Another state follows another state,
Follows another bill, another resolution,
Another ordinance, another amendment,
Another barricade, another brick,
Another steel barred door
Standing in the way of equal justice under the law.

Barring us all up
In this long burning Hell
Under the lock of religious liberty.

It’s a burning Hell in Dixie
From the Appalachian Mountains
To the Mississippi Delta.

Oh it feels like we’re all
Collapsing on the picket lines
Feeling the backlash
Of the damned in Dixie blues.

Transgender Day of Visibility 2016

To honor this special day we bring you the podcast re-run on Trans Mental Health Concerns with Dara Hoffman-Fox

transvdayIt’s Trans Day of Visibility!Here’s 15 Ways To Let Trans People Know You See Them and Care

12832563_504969129685408_64761980957916007_nInternational Transgender Day of Visibility is an annual holiday occurring on March 31 dedicated to celebrating transgender people and raising awareness of discrimination faced by transgender people worldwide. The holiday was founded by Michigan-based transgender activist Rachel Crandall in 2009 as a reaction to the lack of LGBT holidays celebrating transgender people, citing the frustration that the only well-known transgender-centered holiday was the Transgender Day of Remembrance which mourned the loss of transgender people to hate crimes, but did not acknowledge and celebrate living members of the transgender community.
