TSA Fires Trans Employee (Video)

From Bilerico,  By Bil Browning | June 17, 2011 2:30 PM

When Ashley Yang worked for the TSA as an airport screener, they insisted that she cut her hair or wear a “male wig” and would only let her pat down male passengers who regularly sexually harassed her. Originally hired for a two year probationary period, they let her go days before that time expired for continuing to express a female gender identity.

In the Life features Ashley this month and her story and ultimate vindication. When you wonder why trans folk are often more concerned with legislation like ENDA over marriage equality, listen to some of the statistics shared my NCTE Executive Director Mara Keisling.
