Her goal: ridding 'trans' bias at work | StarTribune.com

Her goal: ridding 'trans' bias at work | StarTribune.com: "Vanessa Sheridan of Apple Valley is a consultant with clients that include Best Buy and HSBC Financial. She is a conservative dresser, an articulate professional and a churchgoing Christian.

She is also a transgender woman. Some folks might find this unusual, but Sheridan does not.

'I'm a normal person with a different gender identity,' she said. 'You can be happy and well adjusted and transgender. The trouble with the way we're portrayed in the media is that we're either prostitutes or punch lines.'"

I've read Ms. Sheridan's book, The Complete Guide to Transgender in the Workplace, and I liked it.
