Transgender veteran uses experience to reach out to others – Mara Klecker – Daily Nebraskan

Scott Schneider’s mom still calls him Megan. His dad quit talking to him for eight years.

After struggling with his identity for most of his life, Schneider – a non-traditional student and military veteran finishing his degrees in biology and psychology at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln – started going by Scott in 2007 and began the medical process of transitioning from a female to a male in 2008. Today, he’s worked at UNL’s LGBTQA resource center for a year and a half.
