A Soldier And His Transgender Daughter Demonstrate True Love


A short film is being praised on social media for its depiction of a soldier’s relationship with his young trans daughter.

Titled The Real Thing, the seven-minute film was directed by filmmaker Brandon Kelley and stars young trans actress and Youtube star, Sophie Giannamore.

After a successful run on the international festival circuit, including screenings at last year’s Outfest in Los Angeles, the film was released online last week to coincide with both Trans Awareness Week and Veterans Day.
