July 1, 2014: Going Public
Our friend Zoey, the TV news helicopter pilot, had her facial feminization surgery early this morning, L.A. time. (She’s in Thailand.) I shared a news story of her and former rival Dirk (now Dana) Vahle, a few days ago.
But Zoey has gone farther and has gone public on TV and radio interviews on outlets like HuffPost Live, TMZ and KTLA (a local TV news station) about her journey. And she’s been telling her story via Facebook and Twitter. She is really taking a stand for who she is.
Here’s the link to the KTLA interview. I couldn’t find it on KTLA’s website, but it’s imbedded in this New York Daily News story: http://www.nydailynews.com/entertainment/gossip/tv-news-chopper-pilot-bob-tur-zoey-tur-surgery-article-1.1849771.
I hate that stories like this are treated as gossip. It looks like the Daily News didn’t even interview Zoey for the article; it just got the info from other publications and news stations. But the KTLA interview, which is toward the bottom of the story, is worth watching.
