Trans women to benefit from Peruvian scholarship program

A coalition of Peruvian LGBT groups have started Beca Trans, a scholarship program for transgender women.

The Homosexual Movement of Lima (MHOL), one of Latin America’s leading LGBT organizations started in 1982, has teamed up with AIDS group Vía Libre and the Runa Institute of Gender Studies and Development (RUNA) to offer 45 transgender women the opportunity to complete their studies.

‘Trans teens are possibly one of the most bullied groups in schools, making it so that lots of times they don’t finish school,’ said Belissa Andía Pérez, executive director of RUNA.

This initiative looks to transform the reality of trans teens in school and represents an opportunity to improve the quality of life for transgender people in our country.’
