Cross-dressing hair stylist blames firing on gay bias

Daniel Brant liked to curl his eyelashes and wear mascara and heels when he went to his hair-stylist job at the Chop Shop on the Philadelphia campus of Temple University. When Brant’s boss, Kathy Taylor, transferred him to the salon’s South Street location, reduced his hours and then fired him, he believed it was discriminatory.

Brant sued, alleging Taylor was penalizing him because the Temple location’s customers complained he was too “flamboyant.” Taylor claims she fired him because he was working at another shop and referring customers to it.
