Zot L. Szurgot allegedly walked out of her house naked, turned to five of her neighbors and started wagging her penis.
Szurgot, a 52-year-old transgender man who identifies as both a man and a woman, was arrested Wednesday by the Alachua County Sheriff’s Office for indecent exposure and lewd behavior.
Szurgot lives at 220 SE 73rd Trail.
Of the five people who saw Szurgot’s sexual equipment, one was a 10-year-old boy. Another was his 4-year-old sister.
Szurgot stood about 100 feet from her neighbors, an arrest report states, completely nude.
The boy told officers “the man was naked and shook his wee-wee at me.”
The children’s mother said she wanted to press charges, as did another adult who said he saw more of Szurgot than he preferred, according to police.
On her Facebook page, Szurgot cites Occupy Gainesville as her employer.
She has been quoted in multiple Alligator articles about the movement.
In the past, confusion has surrounded Szurgot’s gender — she lists herself as a female on Facebook, and at least one Alligator article has quoted Szurgot as a woman.
According to the First Kingdom Church of Asphodel’s website, “Zot Lynn Szurgot is one of those magical people living between genders; born and raised a boy, she lives part of eir [sic] life as a masculine union-supporting electrician and part as a feminine spiritual being.”
On Wednesday afternoon, she fell under the former category.
