From the series Beyond Gender.
In 2009, the Mexico City TTT community presented a study to the city government Diversity Commission detailing the existence of labor discrimination against this minority which also revealed the high educational level among this group: 36% have completed high school and 24% university. Nevertheless, the same document indicated 20% unemployment and 55% of sub-employment. But some stories are different, such as that of Angie Rueda, a Ph.D. in Political Sciences and former university professor, now a political and union consultant and a public servant working in government institutions dedicated to sexual diversity rights, who has also written an autobiography published in 2011 â€œHola, Soy Angieâ€â€¦ At present she works for the Institute of Security and Social Services for State Workers where she is respected and appreciated by her colleagues, perhaps because of her conscious self-affirmation and the human warmth she irradiates. She has written. â€œI am the girl of my dreams, my ideal girlâ€¦I am the best of what I have ever done, the highest achievement that I have accomplished in my lifeâ€¦ my authentic self.â€
