Transgender boy makes neighbour cry with incredibly beautiful letter
A transgender 15-year-old boy’s incredibly sweet letter to their neighbour has gone viral.
Audrey told PinkNews that she received the message after placing a trans flag on the front of her home in Salt Lake City, Utah.
Audrey chose to show the world that she was not ashamed of her gender identity by flying the pink, blue and white trans flag in her yard.
It was a brave decision, considering that Salt Lake hosts the headquarters of the Mormon Church, which is struggling to accept LGBT+ equality, despite a poll last year showing that young Mormons increasingly approve of same-sex marriage.
And the sight of the flag seemingly affected a local youngster.
The teenager left a letter for Audrey in which they wrote: “Neighbour – Thank you for having a trans flag waving in your yard.
“I am a 15-year-old trans boy living in an unsupportive household, but every time I see your flag, I feel better.”
“I appreciate your existence and pride. THANK YOU,” they added.
