          Taylor Murphy says he was living his dream as a FDNY firefighter, risking his life to save the lives of others, when he met a transgender woman named Claudia on the streets of New York. Murphy, who was also a model and had gained fame for his sexy photos and firefighter calendar, says Claudia recognized him and struck up a conversation, and the two began dating.
