WATCH: Portrait of a Transgender Hero — “Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story”


After coming out as a transgender woman on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360, former U.S. Navy SEAL Kristin Beck agreed to be the subject of this powerful full-length documentary profile about her life and career. The film was broadcast just this past weekend on CNN, bringing her courageous story to viewers across the country. Beck served for over 20 years as a member of the elite special forces Navy SEALs and retired in 2011 with the rank of Senior Chief. Continuing to do high-level clearance work for the Pentagon, she hid her true identity throughout her service. Featuring interviews with Kristin’s family and friends and footage of Chris Beck in training and combat, Lady Valor presents a moving portrait in courage of a community hero who continues to fight new battles — living her life as a transgender woman.

Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story premieres today across all digital platforms including iTunes, WolfeOnDemand and others. Check out the trailer above.
