The openly gay Texas real estate agent who founded Flee Texas, is expanding his business.
Bob McCranie recently founded Flee Texas to help LGBTQ Texans sell their property and move to a new state.
It was launched in direct response to the Repulican Party’s 2022 Platform.
In the document, the party calls homosexuality an “abnormal lifestyle choice” and endorses conversion therapy practices.
He also opposed “all efforts to validate transgender identity” and called for a ban on gender-affirming care for young people.
The move would see parents who support their transgender children come out about their gender facing charges of child abuse.
“As LGBTQIA+ citizens of Texas, many of us feel unsafe,” the website said.
“If you feel the need to leave Texas jurisdiction, let us help you sell your property here and connect you with an LGBTQIA or ally agent in a better location of your choice.”
“Parents of trans children must escape”
However, Mr McCranie said the service had proven so popular that it was growing.
Run away from the red states will aim to help LGBTQIA+ families in any red (Republican) state find a new home.
“We’ve had feedback from potential clients in other states who need help finding an agent to get them out who will include their family,” McCranie said.
“Right now in Texas, parents of trans kids need to escape.
“If you hire an officer who disagrees with you politically and understands that your child is trans, they can call child protective services and have them come and check your house, investigate you and have your child removed.
“The real estate agent you hire is important and we understand and respect our community.”
