Trans TV reporter and longtime friend of WOW, Zoey Tur, who collaborated with us on our series LA Stories. Zoey finds herself in the news this week discussing Bruce Jenner‘s transition. Zoey – who famously filmed OJ Simpson’s white Bronco chase – told CNN that Jenner should be working faster to help those in the transgender community, many of whom struggle with thoughts of suicide.
“We have a 42 per cent suicide attempt rate. We need Bruce Jenner to come out and stand up and talk about it…we need the world’s greatest athlete. Enough – come out and speak up”
From The Daily Mail:
Tur also spoke about her transition into a woman, saying it was both ‘horribly difficult’ and a ‘positive experience’. She says one of the most rewarding parts is the thousands of messages she’s received from people who identified with her struggles.
Tur previously told People that her daughter Katy was not supportive of her transition at first, and stop talking for her a period after she underwent sexual reassignment surgery last June.
‘My son was great, he told me, ‘I support your decision and if this will make you happy then I’m on board,” Tur told People.
