Seattle Homelessness Official Resigns Following Conference with Transgender Stripper

The director of a Seattle-based agency focusing on homelessness resigned after the agency hosted a conference with a transgender stripper, Breitbart reports.

The official’s name is Kira Zylstra, director of All Home, which is located in King County, Washington. The weekend conference was All Home’s annual conference on homelessness, and video of the overweight, transgender stripper performing for attendees went viral over the weekend.

Following the fallout from the performance, Zylstra was initially placed on leave before resigning from her seat over the weekend. The decision to hire the transgender stripper was initially justified as a “cultural presentation.”

Zylstra’s resignation takes place amidst broader talk of the possibility of All Home being dissolved in the near future, since both the King County Board of Supervisors and the Seattle City Council recently voted to create a new, broader “regional homelessness authority” that will take over most of All Home’s duties for the area.
