Description

A 22-year-old Israeli soldier has become Israel's first transgender officer. He chose not to reveal his name but instead asked to go by Shachar, which means Dawn in Hebrew. Shachar's parents say that he had identified as a male since he was 2 years old, when he asked to have his hair shaved off. When he was four, he asked to stop wearing dresses. Sahchar always knew he had a future in the military, where his mother and father were both officers. The Israeli military suspended its version of the "don't ask, don't tell" policy in the late 1990's and has accepted openly gay recruits ever since. According to Oded Frid, the CEO of the Israeli National LGBT Task Force Task Force rights group, Israel's armed forces are considered one of the most accepting when it comes to gender identity. http://www.nbcnews.com/news/world/israeli-s-first-transgender-officer-army-wants-wants-me-succeed-n571841 http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com
