Mexican Trans Asylum Seeker In Canada Speaks

Ori Garcia is a transwoman seeking asylum in Canada because over the last few years It's gotten rough for my transssisters living south of the border.   I suspect much of the problem happens to be the anti-trans hatred that has filtered down from the Vatican to the flock, and Mexico is a Roman Catholic country.

They are facing more hostile treatment, especially in rural areas up to and including being killed.    Those concerns led to a Mexican transwoman being granted asylum last month in the United States. 

Here's Ori telling her story at a Vancouver Public Library event sponsored by the Canadian Red Cross.
