Trans ‘Warrior Princess’ Kristin Beck plans congressional bid in Fla.
Kristin Beck, who retired from the Navy SEALS in 2011 and made national headlines by coming out as transgender, was in Atlanta Aug. 3-4 visiting First Metropolitan Community Church where she shared her story at the Sunday service.
In an interview with GA Voice, Beck said she plans to run for a Congressional seat in her home state of Florida as a Democrat, with an announcement likely in 2015. Her hometown is Tampa and the seat she would be running for is the 14th Congressional District, currently held by Democrat Kathy Castor.
Beck also plans to write a new memoir with her best friend, Wendy Kelly. Beck’s current book, “Warrior Princess,” represents only a short part of her life, she said. The new book will include a more holistic approach to her life and beliefs.
