Sunday Heartwarming: One Trans Man’s flight in fear from NC

Reevs O'Neal

Given all the awfulness of NC’s HB2, it’s hard to imagine that something good could result from all that hate.
Reevs O’Neal afraid for his life, unable to talk with his mother about transitioning fled NC in desperation. He arrived in Washington DC homeless and without enough money for a nights stay.

“In North Carolina, it definitely wasn’t safe for me to transition,” O’Neal told ABC News. “It was just terrifying.”

North Carolina Governor Pat McCrory said the law is meant to protect men, women and children in bathrooms.

“It is basic common sense. It’s etiquette, privacy that we have had for decades,” McCory said on “Fox & Friends.”

O’Neal said that House Bill 2 will not only make life harder, but more dangerous.

“People are going to get harmed,” O’Neal said. “[The] biggest risk is murder, being killed.”

Incredibly what transpires next in O’Neal’s journey  may help to reinforce your faith in friends, community, and family.
