Vicky Thoms, who attempted to stop the attack on Chrissy Lee Polis, a transgender woman, in a Rosedale McDonald’s a year ago, was honored by the Baltimore County Council, PFLAG-Baltimore County and the Caroline Grace Foundation for bravery and heroism. The attack was captured on video and quickly went viral.

The presentation by Baltimore County Councilman Tom Quirk took place during the March 27 monthly meeting of PFLAG-Baltimore County. Quirk was credited with leading the effort on the Council in ensuring passage of Bill 3-12 that bars discrimination against LGBT individuals in Baltimore County in the areas of employment, education, housing, finance and public accommodations.
