Cycled past the Danish embassy in London the other day and had no idea why there were so many protesters out and about. Have done a bit of a research and the results are shocking – a 22 year old Guatemalan woman is being deported from Denmark as the Danish do not recognise gender identity as grounds for asylum. Transphobia is still very apparent in Guatemala with Fernanda fearing that she will be attacked or tortured upon her arrival.
The Protest took place on Monday 10th September yet she is due back into Guatemala on the 17th September. There is still time to help!
