I commend the SFPD for their hiring of the TG graduate. I was a security officer here in Volusia Co. FL. with a spotless attendance record, received a uniform ribbon for outstanding service with talk of my becoming sergeant. That was until I came out as TG and began living full-time as a female in March of 2013. Within days I received a stinging e-mail from my employer about it and was told to stop or face termination. Despite retaining an attorney he fired me in July of 2013. Now in a lawsuit against the agency I am struggling to find fulltime employment. My hope in that the judgment outcome against the agency will set a standard for others who are discriminated against in the work place so they don't endure the same hardship and pain that I have had to go through.
