Patrick’s People: Stephanie Mott uses education to fight inequality – By Nikki Patrick – Sean Steffen – The Morning Sun

Pittsburg – Stephanie Mott, Topeka, probably won’t tune in to “Dancing With the Stars” to watch Chaz Bono compete, but that’s not because she’s disgusted or horrified by Bono, the former daughter of Cher and Sonny Bono, who now identifies himself as a transsexual man.

Instead, Mott said, she is simply too busy with her day job, her duties as executive director of the Kansas Statewide Transgender Education Project, her work as state vice chair for the Kansas Equality Coalition, her studies toward a bachelor of science in social work at Washburn University, her volunteer work with the Topeka/Shawnee County Homeless Taskforce and her involvement with her church.
