Last week Mishell Romani and other local trans activists met with Susana Villaran, Lima's Mayor and one of the few staunch supporters of LGBT equality and justice.
This meeting was instigated by Chilean activist Andres Rivera, a good friend of mine. During The AIDS Conference in DC i had mentioned to him the need for political support for the struggle of my trans sisters and brothers in Peru and he seized the chance while attending another conference to arrange a meeting that has already invigorated the base and validated the efforts of our activists.
I share this with you my backers because a copy of our film was given to the Mayor as a reminder of her promises and commitment to the fight for equal rights.
A tool for change indeed!!!
