The militancy and fight for trans identities and the LGB+ collective took place in Puerto Rico since the 60 s; just like the United States during what was the Human Rights Movement. There were various demonstrations that gave rise to what is now achieved as a society and what is still missing. The fight in Puerto Rico, here and there, had its protagonistic faces between it is recognized and we honor Cristina Hayworth.
Cristina, unfortunately, no longer shares this earthly plane with us; she has transcended into the light. In the face of sad news of the passing of this iconic trans activist, we pay tribute to him.
