Brazil is the country with the most cases of transphobia in the world and the most killings of trans people. There are new cases every day around the entire country. The social exclusion that these people suffer occurs in several dimensions of their social ties, including families, schools, colleges and workplaces.

As a result of discrimination against the trans population in schools, many trans individuals do not have access to higher education. They also face discrimination because of societal stereotypes based on appearances, which then creates a significant obstacle to entering the labor market. The lack of opportunity to hold traditional jobs has pushed the majority of the transvestite population in Brazil to work in the prostitution industry. This is exacerbated by societal prejudice against people with AIDS and HIV.

This campaign seeks to raise funds for trans sex workers based in Lapa, a neighborhood in the center of Rio de Janeiro. The outbreak of the coronavirus has depleted their customer base, which means that many have been left without a source of income. They have struggled to pay rent, buy food, and otherwise survive since the outbreak of pandemic. The funds from this campaign will help them afford vital purchases, including food and hygiene materials.
