If you happen to live in the U.S., or any western country for that matter, chances are you’ve passed a house with pride flags in the windows or on the lawn. Although some conservatives hate on this, most people actually love it, and some even see a potential safe heaven, and they see the flag as a universal code/sign.
Heather is a woman that had put out pride flags on her window and her lawn, but what she didn’t expect was to be contacted by an LGBTQ+ person in need that saw a ‘safe heaven’ when they saw the flags. She shared on Twitter that there was a note left on her door a few days ago, and it was actually a letter from a trans kid from the neighborhood.
This is what the note read:
“You see, I’m a transgender dude, but my parents aren’t exactly accepting. I desperately want to get a chest binder, but I can’t exactly have one sent to my house. I was wondering if I could have one sent here. You wouldn’t have to do anything apart from letting me pick it up. “I understanding that this [is] a lot to ask, and I don’t want you to feel pressured if you are not comfortable with it. However, if you could even consider helping me out, you can email me at (his email address)”.
Of course, Heather immediately said ‘Yes’.
The note she shared on Twitter immediately went viral, and it racked up almost 200k likes. Additionally, Heather even started collecting funds to help her neighbor buy a binder or several clothing”, and many Twitter users were touched by the note.
One person wrote that they will buy a pride flag because of this story, although they’re not a member of the LGBTQ+ community.
Another one added that the trans kid must have agonized over that letter for days, and it was great that they could count on her.
