“Raised by two supportive mothers, Emma felt lucky to have such powerful role models in her life,” a synopsis of the ad states. “Inspired by their courage and conviction, she was determined to face challenges of her own and shatter stereotypes along the way.”
“This is the story of a soldier who operates your nation’s Patriot missile Defense Systems. It begins in California with a little girl raised by two moms,” the ad starts off before chronicling Malonelord’s journey from child to sorority girl and then eventually military recruitment.
Malonelord says during the ad that joining the army was “a way to prove my inner strength and maybe shatter some stereotypes.”
A report from the Council on Foreign Relations revealed that women comprise 16% of enlisted forces and 19% of the officer corps, however, the military does not keep statistics on LGBTQ military personnel.
