Former Navy SEAL Chris Beck is now out as Kristin.

I first met Chris Beck when he was at SEAL Team One. While Chris was always a little different, in a good way, and incredibly intelligent.

Chris went on to serve out a full retirement and finished his twenty years of service as an E-8 (Senior Chief Petty Officer), completed a tour of SEAL Team 6, and after retiring, came out while working as a Defense contractor for the US Special Operations Command.

I spoke with her a few months ago about a story but we decided to hold back until she announced a new book.

We wish Kristen the best for whatever the future holds.

Kristin Beck’s Bio

Chris Beck played high school football. He bought a motorcycle, much to his mother’s dismay, at age 17. He grew up to become a U.S. Navy SEAL, serving our country for twenty years on thirteen deployments, including seven combat deployments, and ultimately earned a Purple Heart and the Bronze Star. To everyone who saw him, he was a hero. A warrior. A man.
