Join us on October 8th at 10 AM (EST) for our upcoming Webinar with Professor Ofer Erez. Ofer will discuss being the first openly transgender officer to serve in the IDF.
At the age of 25, Ofer Erez made history as Israel's first openly transgender IDF Officer. During his 3 years of service, Ofer has led the fight for policy changes for trans and LBGTQ service members. During his military service, Erez also served as a consultant for the IDF Gender Affairs adviser to the chief of staff where he took part in drafting a new code for transgender service in the army. In recent years he was sent by the Foreign and Defence ministries to advocate for Israel abroad.
