North Carolina

Season 1 Ep 37/10/2006

ANT drives on down to North Carolina, home of NASCAR, and discovers an accepting and progressive southern community. A quick detour finds ANT helping Mary, Karen and their children hold an impromptu picket when the local Y refuses to recognize them as a family. After spending some quality time with the kids, Uncle ANT heads over to Chapel Hill, where he meets an openly gay candidate and his partner, the first gay mayor elected in the state, who take him on a tour of the town. Bringing his visit to a close, ANT has the chance to sit down with a student who was a victim of a hate crime, but still maintains faith in his community.
