Lily McBeth




Age: 80


Summary: New Jersey transgender teacher whose battles with school boards made her a symbol of the transgender rights movement (she was formerly known as William McBeth and had undergone sex reassignment surgery), in which the schools' 2006 decisions to keep her on as a substitute were hailed as a model of tolerance and acceptance of transgender Americans, but who resigned in 2009 after getting only a handful of assignments.
