A woman is claiming the local Salvation Army discriminated against her because she is transgender.
Jennifer Ney, who identifies as a transgender woman, is traveling through Amarillo on her way to Oklahoma. After a stop at Northwest Hospital to repair a broken cast, Ney spent Wednesday night at the Salvation Army and claims she was not allowed to sleep in the female dorms.
She currently has facial hair because she has not been able to obtain her hormone medication.
(Commenter's note: Estrogen does not make male facial hair evaporate.)
"All people we see are created with equal value," said Johnson. "I feel confident that under the circumstances we probably did the best that we could. We offered the person a private room and they chose to stay out in the lobby."
