CNN will air the documentary Her Name Was Steven this weekend,
March 13 and 14, at 8 p.m. Eastern.
It tells the story of Steven Stanton, a former Largo, Fla., city manager whose world came crashing down when a local reporter called to confirm a tip she'd received that Stanton had been cross-dressing and researching gender reassignment. CNN followed Stanton for more than two years for this project.
Stanton's career came to a halt when it was revealed he was in the process of transitioning. The film follows Stanton from the press conference that ended this career through the emotional months that followed, including interviews with Stanton's wife, son, and coworkers.
