TB6Lbsz_EjgLady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story Advocacy Arts Movies The film “Lady Valor: The Kristin Beck Story”, tells the story of Former Navy SEAL Christopher Beck – entering a brave new chapter in her life as Kristin Beck. As a transgender person Kristin Beck confronts American culture and takes us on a journey to gain new meaning in her life. To be part of the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, and Intersex (LGBTQI) community in any military, is often unheard of. The discrimination and prejudice faced by the LGBTQI community is notorious within the military and armed services. The film engages us in Kristin Beck’s epic life-changing transformation as she explores the American ideals that she protected as a navy seal: life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness have a whole new meaning as she lives as a transgender woman. Her journey begins in 2011, after serving as a navy seal for over 19 years she retired from service. Throughout this time, she hid her true identity while working for the United States Government and the Pentagon. She then took the bold step to come out publicly and confirmed her true identity on CNN’s Anderson Cooper 360. Kristin’s battle did not end on the battlefield; she faced harsh criticism and prejudice from some of the public who expressed anger and hate. In the pursuit of her human rights, Kristin has found support in her family, friends and wider LGBTQI community. Kristin is a courageous transgender woman and a reminder to us all of the importance and power of being true to ourselves.
