Beck also plans to write a new memoir with her best friend, Wendy Kelly, who wrote a book titled "Buji and Me" about how pets can change our lives. Beck's current book, "Warrior Princess," represents only a short part of her life, she said. The new book will include a more holistic approach to her life and beliefs.

Beck said to look for plans of her announcing a bid for office closer to 2015. She said she is currently beginning to speak at engagements on behalf of the U.S. State Department, a position she said she is qualified for because of her 20 years in the military. She is also enjoying meeting other LGBT activists and speaking out at various equality events in Florida. She comes back to Atlanta in September for the annual Southern Comfort Conference.
During her 20 years in the military, Beck saw much combat in numerous countries around the world and earned a Purple Heart and Bronze Star.
