Madison’s story: “Immediately some guy screamed.”

I was walking up Chebucto Lane with my dogs mid-afternoon, and I remember actually thinking to myself that I feel safe and welcome in this city, like maybe I could be an out trans woman and that would be okay.

I crossed Chebucto Rd and immediately some guy screamed at the top of his lungs “FFFFRRRRRREEEEEAAAAAAAK!” as he was driving by. There were plenty of people around, and I was walking my dogs on a busy street on a sunny afternoon. UGH.
