Ep: 45 A Transgender Military Family Part 2
Nov 27th, 2018 by dearmilfamily at 7:00 am

Part two of A Transgender Military Family picks up where we left off in our discussion from last week. The Frams explain what they would like everyone to know about their family and other families with a transgender member. And since the last episode aired, the current administration is trying to further remove protections for transgender members in the military. It's now more important than ever to let your voice be heard and support other military families.

Lieutenant Colonel Bryan Bree Fram, B, is an active duty astronautical engineer (rocket scientist) in the US Air Force currently serving as Materiel Leader, Cyberspace Integration and Transition at the Air Force Research Laboratory Information Directorate in Rome, NY. Previously B was the Iraq Country Director in Air Force International Affairs stationed at the Pentagon responsible for overseeing all Air Force security cooperation and security assistance activity with Iraq. Lt Col Fram publicly came out as transgender (gender-fluid/non-binary) on the day the transgender ban in the military was dropped in 2016. B has received the warm support of friends, family and colleagues. Lt Col Fram is a board member of SPART*A, an organization that advocates and educates about transgender military service and is dedicated to the support and professional development of over 750 transgender service members. B has provided a number of educational briefings on transgender and diversity issues to military and civilian audiences and is available for speaking engagements or media requests. Peg Fram is a crafter, military spouse, mother, and wine lover. She earned degrees in Forensic Anthropology, Forensic Science, and Spanish allowing her to work for medical examiners and police departments before staying home to raise her two daughters. In addition to child rearing she quilts, sews, paints, knits, and builds/fixes whatever her family needs. B and Peg Fram have been married for 14 years and they have two girls, age 10 and 6.
