Trans In a Dangerous World

Originally published on Instagram, natgeo This is Trina. She is a transwoman living in Jamaica, one of the most dangerous countries of the world for Trans and gender non-confirming individuals. Sanctioned prejudice against people such as Trina creates a society of violence. They are at extreme risk for assault and suicide. Trina has been shot, stabbed, burned with acid and hacked with a machete across her face. Photo by @ljohnphoto for Nat Geo’s Special Issue-Gender RevolutionUntitled.jpeg
