Public Story

This project is about the Latino Trans community in New York City. The Latino transgender community suffers from high levels of discrimination that include racism and homophobia. Many of them come to New York City running away of the intolerance and violence against their sexual condition in many countries in Central and Latin America.  This work documents transgender Latinas, and includes intimate portraits of these women in their home.
