Largo's in trouble now

According to Transgender Workplace Diversity (Dr. Jillian Todd Weiss' blog), Steve/Susan Stanton has decided not to take this blatantly discriminatory firing lying down. Stanton will be filing an appeal. Dr. Weiss believes that Stanton may have a good legal case should a lawsuit be necessary.

Since the basis for calling for his firing seems to be primarily on religious grounds, I suspect she's right. And it looks like Stanton may actually have a preponderance of support in the the area.

Stanton was interviewed in Newsweek about the whole mess. Here's some info from the Human Rights Campaign on transgender basics.
