YREN ROTELA AND MARIANA SEPÚLVEDA / PARAGUAY
DON’T TELL US WHO WE ARE
Yren and Mariana want to live their lives freely, but as trans women they are busy fighting for their rights. Trans people in Paraguay can’t legally change their names or obtain identity documents that match their gender identity. The state is trying to make them invisible. What’s more, it is difficult for trans groups to protest and speak out about the barriers they face.
