Transgender people are at extremely high risk to be bullied, to be sexually assaulted, or to attempt suicide. Trina (her street name), right, hides during the day and does sex work at night—the only time she feels safe wearing feminine clothing. Still, she’s been attacked with acid, knives, a machete, and a gun. English (red hair) and Sasha (also street names) live with Trina and others in a storm-water diversion gully in Kingston, Jamaica. Days after these photos were taken, two gangs doused everyone there and all their belongings with gasoline and set them on fire. English and Sasha were injured.
