OUT: What does it mean for you to be trans in America right now?
Mia Mason: I’m extremely independent and motived to lead the way for our civil rights.
Looking back, do you have any regrets about your time in the armed services?
I’ve loved serving my country in the Navy and Army. I’ve had the honor of seeing the majority of the world and, through different cultures, I appreciate what we have here.
How do you hope that the work you do will inspire others in the trans community?
I haven’t asked much of them, only forewarned them on social media, [but] as Trump began to take away rights, I asked them to raise their voice and listen to me. I want to help end this injustice and hope others will join me.
