A trans woman from Lincoln is suing her former employers, claiming that they sacked her after she began wearing women’s clothes to work.

Rachel Millington, 24, has been living as a woman for a year and plans to eventually have gender reassignment surgery.

She worked as a support worker for people with learning disabilities.

She claims that her employer terminated her contract after she changed her name and began presenting herself as a woman.

Ms Millington told the Lincolnshire Echo she did not know of any other reason why her contracted ended and will take the company to a tribunal next month.

The company, which was not named by the newspaper, declined to comment.
