Diane, a former Airborne Ranger, qualified Special Forces officer, retired after 25 years of distinguished service in the Army and began taking steps to transition from male to female shortly thereafter. She was offered a job as a terrorism research analyst at the Library of Congress, but the offer was rescinded when she told her future supervisor that she was undergoing gender transition.
During tomorrow's proceedings the judge will hear testimony from both Diane and the woman who would have been her supervisor, had the Library of Congress done the right thing and hired the most experienced, highly qualified person for the job.
Stay tuned. We'll add news and updates about the case to the Get Busy, Get Equal blog over the next few days. In the meantime, click here to watch a video and learn more about Diane's case.
