PLEASE SUPPORT MY BOOK reach people with stories like Tamara’s!! ANY amount helps—LINK IN BIO!!
Tamara leaves for work in downtown Lima, Peru. “I want to have a job with somebody I know, someone who trusts me. Because otherwise, they discriminate against you, they look at you up and down when you’re looking for work,” she told me. Tamara’s words sounded like those of other trans women who had searched for employment but were always turned away. For most trans women in Lima, their only option is sex work, which creates hostile, exploitative environments where they’re targets of disease, violence and sexual and substance abuse, with limited opportunities for social security and higher education.
I'm currently running a @Kickstarter
campaign (LINK IN BIO!) to fund my first book about the life-threatening challenges trans women face in Latin America. If I meet the goal, with the educational photo book I'll aim to reach police forces, medical institutions, and lawmakers—sectors that are often complicit in the abuse against trans women because of institutional prejudice and lack of understanding. ANY AMOUNT HELPS—many, many thanks! LINK IN BIO!
