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 “Hola, Soy Angie”… 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. “I am the girl of my dreams, my ideal girl…I am the best of what I have ever done, the highest achievement that I have accomplished in my life… my authentic self.”
