North Carolina

Slain transgender woman was Reggie Bullock's sibling

Posted July 16, 2014

UNC junior Reggie Bullock (35) looks to pass during the North Carolina Tar Heels vs. Miami Hurricanes NCAA basketball game, Thursday, January 10, 2013 in Chapel Hill, NC.

A transgender woman found slain in Baltimore is the sibling of NBA player and former North Carolina guard Reggie Bullock.

Bullock of the Los Angeles Clippers confirms to WJZ-TV that Mia Henderson, who was born Kevin Long, was his brother. Bullock also sent a tweet on Wednesday paying tribute to Henderson, with the hashtag "RIPKEVIN."



Baltimore police say the 26-year-old Henderson was found dead early Wednesday morning in an alley in northwest Baltimore. Police have not identified any suspects or established a motive, and they don't know yet whether there's any connection to the slaying of another transgender woman last month.

Bullock is heading into his second season with the Clippers. He was a first-round draft pick last year out of the University of North Carolina.

    It is a person who is born male but feels more female. A transgender person typically takes hormones to change their voice and other physical traits (like facial hair growth and chest hair if it's a transgender male), or undergo other procedures (like laser hair removal on the face if it's a transgender woman) and lives their life as the gender they feel they should have been. A transSEXUAL, however, is a person who has also undergone the surgeries to change their anatomy to match the gender they feel they should be (although that usually goes for the bottom surgery specifically. People who get top surgery done but not the bottom surgery typically still go by the term transgender instead of transsexual.)

    So what is a transgender woman? A woman who wants to be a man or the other way around?
