Federal Judge: Being Trans Isn’t a Reason to Fire Georgia Legislative Aide

Vandy Beth Glenn, the Georgia legislative aide removed from her post after relaying to her boss she was MTF transgender (an “immoral” thing to do, said boss Legislative Counsel Sewell Brumby), has been given her job back — by court order. Fired in 2007 after two years as an aide, Glenn must be reinstated, a judge ruled today, although it’s unclear what that time line looks like. Glenn has said all along that she only wants to return to her old job.
