WorkPride panel (in Spanish): Olvidados dos veces, la historia no contada de los refugiados LGTBI+

Las empresas tienen un papel fundamental en la inclusión laboral de los refugiados LGTBI+. Aquellas personas que han buscado refugio por su orientación sexual o género. Hay 69 países en los cuales la homosexualidad está perseguida. Además de 12 países en los que conlleva pena de muerte. De la mano de la ONG Rescate y Google conoceremos el testimonio de un refugiado LGBTI+ y diferentes formas de colaborar con entidades que trabajan esta realidad.

    When I was 16 years old, I started as a volunteer in the Rainbow Association of Honduras. It was there that I discovered my rights as a trans woman. I proudly remember the beginnings of my participation in this leading organization in the defense of human rights in the country. I lived my transition in a country with few possibilities, macho, LGTBIphobic, but that also taught me to survive, to be an independent, strong woman. I had to stay alive and help other people. Little by little they were changing representatives or presidents in the organization. This happened for two reasons: either because they murdered us, or because we had to flee. Support and welcome trans women disowned by their families, demand a gender identity law, litigate archived cases of violence against trans people, or identify their bodies in morgues; it was part of my activist and vital involvement in the cause. At the same time, I experienced firsthand that violence that I denounced against all impunity, coming to suffer up to four assassination attempts. Every morning I woke up thanking God for being alive. But I also asked him to end the day soon without anyone hurting me or killing me. Today, I strengthen myself as an activist to continue fighting for the rights of LGTBI people, with a main focus such as trans women.
