My new hero: transgender & retired Navy SEAL officer Kristin Beck

October 23, 2017

After Trump's transgender tweet-firing, retired Navy SEAL officer Kristin Beck said: "Let's meet face to face and you tell me I'm not worthy.”



Krisin is my new hero. Along with three active transgender service members I interviewed the past five days. I'm late in posting this, because I've been crazy at work on a piece about them for Vanity Fair. (While also traveling to Vermont for a wonderful stint as Visiting Writer at Marlboro College's writing intensive.) 


The Vanity Fair piece should be up today. I'll post again.




Update: The transgender troops piece is done, but there was a delay on the photo side. It should go up tomorrow morning. 


2nd update: My transgender troops piece is up at Vanity Fair. I was taken aback by the response it got. Thanks to all of you who responded.
