Saarvesh: Transgender Day of Remembrance 2019 I-Story series

Saarvesh: I-Story

Hello. My preferred name is Mim. Queer and trans people face a lot of challenges such as limits to freedom to express ourselves or being constantly starred at in a judgmental way.

Being a queer person one of the positive things from life is that I have become resilient to overcome life challenges despite the hardships from society.

On the occasion of the Transgender Day of Remembrance, let us be inspired by Trans people who fought and lost their lives for their rights and let us join those who are still fighting to have a place in society.

Saarvesh I-Story


Saarvesh: I-Story

Bonjour. Mon nom préféré est Mim. Les personnes homosexuelles et les trans font face à de nombreux défis, comme les limites à la liberté de s’exprimer ou le fait d’être constamment regardés d’un oeil critique.

Etant une personne queer une des choses positives de la vie est que je suis devenu résilient pour surmonter les défis de la vie malgré les difficultés de la société.

À l’occasion de la Journée commémorative des personnes transgenres, inspirons-nous des personnes trans qui ont combattu et perdu leur vie pour défendre leurs droits et joignons-nous à ceux qui luttent encore pour avoir une place dans la société.
