We are delighted that last weekend our short documentary film, Go Debbie, premiered on both coasts: in Los Angeles at the New Filmmakers LA Film Festival and New York City at the NYC Shorts Film Festival where it won the Award for Best LGBT documentary. We are proud of this work and honored that we have been able to share the special story of one transgender Vietnam veteran. Our project ‘Valuing Our Veterans’ is so-titled becuase it valuies all veterans - no matter their gender, race, religion, sexual orientation or country of origin.
We recognize that the subject is controversial for some people. However, we also know that there are 15,000 transgender men and women serving in the military, as well as 134,000 transgender veterans, all of whom have and do serve this country. We thus stand by this issue and we feel that all veterans, no matter their gender, should be valued, recognized and honored. And, thankfully, it seems the larger world agrees, as Go Debbie becomes the most successful short in 3G history. We have been accepted into 6 film festivals and counting, with three of the screenings this month alone.
Now more than ever, transgender men and women, especially those who serve our country, deserve our care and attention. During the coming months we will continue to fight for the rights of transgender veterans as we share Debbie’s story wherever we can.
