Susan Stanton stepped out for the first time yesterday, appearing at a National Center for Transgender Equality event at the National Press Club in Washington D.C.

Susan once went by the name Steve Stanton, the former Largo, Florida city manager who caused quite a stink when he announced his plans to become a woman. Since being forced out of politics, Stanton has undergone hormone therapy and electrolysis.

Though Stanton believes in her cause, she’s still shedding popular misconceptions of trangendered persons. Stanton tells the St. Petersburg Times – the same paper that blew the lid off of Stanton’s impending transition: “It’s amazing how many well-adjusted, well-accomplished, happy, interactive people there are at this event. It’s been a learning experience for me, too.”

Stanton’s also learning about getting dolled up: she spent the hours before the event getting her hair done and a manicure:

…In the morning, she had her first professional blow dry and manicure.

For the day’s events, her hair was styled fluffy on top with wispy bangs in front. She chose a soft rose color to accent her sporty nails. She admired herself in the mirror.

“I could get used to this,” she said, as the manicurist massaged her hands.

Ooo, girl – you go on with your bad self!

      She’s also on the short list of 6 finalists for the Sarasota City Manager position, according to local radio. Go Susan! Those christo-bigots in Largo don’t deserve you anymore.
