tra le morti celebri per coronavirus dobbiamo aggiungere l'album CHROMATICA di Lady Gaga rimandato a data da destinarsi a poco piu di una settimana dalla data di pubblicazione ufficiale che sarebbe stata il 10 aprile 😕

Lorena Borjas 30/03/2020

Prima che diciate che non è famosa...era nota come la mamma delle trans latine di queens essendo di origine Messicane

For decades, Borjas worked to protect transgender victims of human trafficking (which she herself had experienced), slavery, and violence.

She hosted women who had been ostracized from their families in her own apartment until they were able to support themselves.

She walked the streets seeking women who needed her help, providing condoms and food, and connecting these women to social services.

She worked without pay to facilitate access to HIV testing and hormone therapy for transgender sex workers, including setting up a weekly HIV testing clinic in her home, and providing syringe exchanges for women taking hormone injections.

In 1995, she organized her first march in support of the transgender community.

As reflected by Cecilia Gentili, a friend and a transgender leader:

"Needed a lawyer? Doctor? Housing? A job? She was there. Lorena was that person who, if you got arrested, you called her at three in the morning and she would answer. First thing in the morning she would be in court with a lawyer to get you out of jail.

With Chase Strangio, Borjas founded the Lorena Borjas Community Fund, which provides bail assistance to LGBT defendants.

She became a counselor for the Community Healthcare Network's Transgender Family Program, where she worked to obtain legal aid for victims of human trafficking.

During the coronavirus pandemic, Lorena created and promoted a mutual aid fund, via GoFundMe, to help transgender people who were impacted by the economic crisis
