Sobrevivientes Trans de la Dictadura Argentina

La persecución sistemática, violación y tortura de personas transgénero es un capítulo poco conocido de las dictaduras militares en Latino América. Después de años de lucha, un grupo de mujeres trans en la provincia argentina de Santa Fe lograron ser reconocidas como víctimas del estado y recibirán reparaciones. Marzia y Carolina volvieron a las celdas donde estuvieron encerradas para contar su historia, para que nunca se repita.

Marzia and Carolina went back to the cells where they were held captive to tell their story, so that history doesn’t repeat itself.
