I Cannot Turn My Back

Evelyn M.

I was the first trans person in the state of Rio Grande do Sul to officially change my name and gender. The clerk very naively said: “Good, Evelyn. Now you don’t need to say you’re trans anymore, right?” To which I replied: “Now I am really saying I am trans! I cannot turn my back on this fight. Other trans people need to understand they can also do what I did.
