I am TRANS* - Thats my PRIDE

Sasha is a young and beautiful graphic designer, and she was a top student in her class, however, she is unable to get a job, and in everyday life encounters difficult obstacles because she refuses to hide her identity - she is a trans* person.

Sasha “came out of the closet,” and revealed her sexual identity at the end of her first year of college. Her mother accepted it from the beginning, while her father had great problems with it. He never accepted Sashas true identity and was physically abusive to her. Transgender people living in Serbia say that environmental prejudices are slowly ending and there is less and less fear of violence. When it comes to love and making relationships, there are also problems because of prejudice, but several significant relationships that she had, have encouraged her to be who she is and to be loved just for who she is.

The biggest problem for the trans * community, like the rest of the population in Serbia, is unemployment, even for those with high education level.

Sasha has entered the process of transition, that is, gender change. Her body accepts therapy, and hopes to have surgery in two years, she has given herself such a deadline.
