Johana Ramirez: Why she kicks ass
She is spokesperson for Trans Organization Reinas de la Noche (OTRANS) in Guatemala and a leader of the Latin American and Caribbean Network of Transgender People who presented a shadow report to the UN Human Rights Committee in March 2012.  
Ramirez spoke of the tragic situation for trans people in Guatemala in a press release, saying, “During 2011, we organized trans women have suffered a series of attacks against us, culminating in a climax of murder.” She continued, “The recent cases and those suffered over the past decade are accompanied by a string of discrimination (in public spaces such as health centers, schools, prisons, etc.), persecution, and extortion perpetrated mainly by security forces.”
She spoke at “Light for rights – Guatemala and the world united against AIDS” public event. 
With OTRANS, she has plans for opening up a small clothing factory but still needs to come up with the funds, and has plans to become a fashion designer.


Love!
