TRANSEXUAL SPORTSWRITER COMMITS SUICIDE

MIKE PENNER/CHRISTINE DANIELS

The transexual Los Angeles Times writer, who made news in 2007 by announcing that he was becoming a woman, has been found dead. Mike Penner apparently commited suicide.

Penner announced, in a 2007 LA Times column, that he was a transexual and was going to become a woman. Penner then began a column entitled, “Woman in Progress” under the byline Christine Daniels. However, in late 2008, Penner switched back to being a man.

    RIP – Mike Penner, 52, was an LA Times sportswriter who announced he was transsexual. His marriage ended, he never got the requisite surgery, & in ‘08 he dusted off his old byline & stopped writing as ‘Christine Daniels’. It ended badly.
