Ramsay MacLeod – The Fighter

Ramsay MacLeod is a fighter.

“I feel like we’re at the moment where it’s time to get back up and put the boots back on and go into battle,” MacLeod said.

The current culture wars in Florida remind MacLeod of her time in the Air Force when she was the target of an investigation into her sexuality while stationed in Okinawa. She called the investigation a “witch hunt” and the events surrounding her discharge still give her PTSD.

“I paid a big price for some of my decisions, but I wouldn’t change a thing,” MacLeod said. “I enjoyed being in the military.”

MacLeod moved to South Florida in 1988 and found work in the medical billing profession as a contractor for the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Recently, she participated in the intergenerational Legacy Project, presented by Compass LGBTQ Community Center and Palm Beach Dramaworks. MacLeod used the platform to advocate for school support groups for LGBT youth.

“We need to have gay social clubs in school and transgender social clubs in school and the school systems need to support that,” MacLeod said.

MacLeod, 68, calls Lake Worth home. She enjoys riding her motorcycle and working on her home, built in 1924.
