NEW ORLEANS - A 21-year-old transgender man is suing a loan company over sex discrimination after he says he was forced to leave his job once company officials found out he was born a woman but dressed and acted like man.

Tristan Broussard filed suit on Monday against First Tower Loan LLC., a financial loan company based in Flowood, Mississippi, with offices in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Missouri and Illinois.

Broussard charges he was forced to leave his job at its Lake Charles offices in March 2013 after a company executive found out he was listed on his driver's license as being female. He charges that the executive demanded he dress and act like a woman, something he refused to do.

Tower Loan's lawyer declined to comment.

Broussard is seeking damages against the company.
