You probably heard of Steve Stanton. But what about John Nemecek?

At the same time that Steve Stanton came out as transgendered and was fired as City Manager after 14 years on the job, a Spring Arbor University professor was fired for exactly the same reason. The evangelical university had stated that Nemecek had been acting in a manner "inconsistent with the Christian faith" during his W-to-M transition.

But now, the University has settled with Nemecek after he threatened a workplace discrimination lawsuit. This is a small victory for equality. We hope that this news has a positive impact on the upcoming Stanton hearing and possible lawsuit.
