Firefighter’s transgender widow says they were married before she had sex-reassignment surgery – ABC13 – Dallas Voice

Since we posted this item yesterday about the transgender widow of a fallen firefighter near Houston, the story has gone national, but as far as we can tell, the local ABC affiliate is the only media outlet that’s actually talked to the widow, Nikki Araguz:

Thomas Araguz was a volunteer firefighter. He died in a blaze at an egg farm July 4 near Boling. The fire was ruled accidental.

His mother, Simona Rodriguez Longoria, and ex-wife, Heather Delgado, have filed suit at the Wharton County Courthouse, claiming he did not know Nikki had been born a man.
