Former city worker says she was fired for sex change – By Franco Ordoñez and Maria David – Charlotte Observer

Charlotte, N.C. — A former city operations assistant at a Charlotte maintenance facility has sued the city, claiming she was fired because she had a sex change.

Anne Marie Clukey, who worked for the city for nearly two years, said she was fired because she did not conform to her supervisor’s “gender stereotype.”

“I have been out for awhile working,” Clukey said this week. “I never had a problem like this before in other places I’ve lived.”
