Pam Curry

Dallas Morning News ran a story about discrimination in housing, employment and accommodation in Texas that is legal outside of Dallas, Fort Worth and sometimes Plano featuring trans activist Pam Curry.

In the story, Curry didn’t talk about the resolution of her case.

She was in her apartment complex’s office and heard the manager use the words “transvesti” and “SIDA,” Spanish for transvestite and AIDS.

She filed a complaint with the Dallas Fair Housing office that handles discrimination cases in the city, but the article doesn’t explain the resolution.

Curry moved from the Cedar Point apartments on Cedar Springs Road at the Tollway (where the new Echo now stands), where she had lived for eight years.

“About about a month after I moved, the VP of the company called me to apologize for everything that happened,” Curry said. “Apparently they did an audit and found that everything I claimed and more was true. The manager dripped lies from her tongue and was terminated.”

Curry said she was satisfied with that resolution.

While opponents of the anti-discrimination ordinance like to pretend there’s a high cost to small business in defending these complaints, often a simple apology is all anyone wants.
