A Glimmer of Hope for Transgender People
Imagine this scenario. You are a man, you wear {Men's Fashion} clothes, you may even have facial hair. One day, the government segregates men and women and you are told you can only go out on women’s day. You follow these new rules, but everyone stares at you on the street because you do not look like a woman. When you try to enter a supermarket, bank, or pharmacy, you have to explain to the guard that, despite your masculine appearance, your identification says “female.” Sometimes they let you in, sometimes they do not. One day, a police officer stops you for being out on “the wrong day” and arrests you. This story is representative of what many transgender men and women are experiencing in Panama today. Intolerance and misunderstanding is nothing new to the transgender community, but the gender-based quarantine that began on April 1 has exacerbated these experiences. In the context of Covid-19, this discrimination means transgender people face hurdles to get basic necessities, like food and medicine. In some cases they have been unjustly jailed when seeking these necessities. For many trans people, this heightened vulnerability has also had a psychological impact, a feeling of profound isolation and despondency. Some have sworn to flee the country as soon as the pandemic subsides. www.hrw.org/news/2020/08/03/glimmer-hope-transgender-people#
