Transgender woman on restroom incident: ‘It felt hateful’

WRAL.comJanuary 11, 2019

A transgender woman who said she was assaulted in the bathroom of Glenwood South’s popular Milk Bar last month said Thursday that the incident was “traumatic.”

Kai, 29, said she went to the bathroom at Milk Bar on Dec. 9 to fix her hair and makeup when two women started aggressively touching her and exposing themselves.

“It became a very uncomfortable situation, something I just did not expect to happen,” she said. “It was just a very, very scary, very claustrophobic, traumatic situation that happened, just being groped and taken advantage of.”

The behavior, she says, kept on at the bar, where the bartender demanded they stop.
