Transgender Latin Americans face violence, bigotry
Transgender Latin Americans face violence, bigotry. A transgender sex worker looks waits for customers on a street in Tegucigalpa, Honduras...
I'm not exactly sure why they had to use a transgender sex worker (as opposed to perhaps a transgender community volunteer) to illustrate their story. I suppose transgender people are so marginalized that the sex workers tend to become synonymous. That is a sad reality for many, even in more "civilized societies." But in any event, the statistics are alarming and unacceptable. I hope a focus on human rights will lead to a better life for our transgender brothers and sisters in these countries. ~ Lori
