OKLAHOMA CITY, OK (KSWO) – House employee Karen Kipgen issued an apology today concerning an email she sent earlier in the week referring to transgender students visiting the capitol as “cross dressers.”

“I sincerely apologize for the hurt my statements caused. I used a poor choice of words. I have learned from this incident to be more sensitive and to become more educated on this issue. I would ask for grace in this process and for forgiveness.”

The email from the page program supervisor came as about 70 LGBTQ students from the Tulsa area were at the Capitol to lobby on behalf of HIV awareness and education funding.
