On International Transgender Day of Visibility, we honor our transgender siblings and celebrate our heroes. Yesterday we lost the mother of the trans Latinx community of Queens, Lorena Borjas. Lorena immigrated to the United States from Mexico and became one of the greatest activists in Jackson Heights. Our community will sorely miss Lorena and her tireless advocacy for the rights, visibility and safety of the transgender community.
