Fortaleciendo la Diversidad - Mexico

Fortaleciendo la Diversidad operates from San Luis Potosí, Mexico, and is dedicated to improving the quality of life, health, and acceptance of transgender populations and sex workers. Promoting self-acceptance to 200 transgender people, Fortaleciendo la Diversidad focuses on human rights sensitization through an analysis of stigma – including self stigma - and discrimination. Its HIV prevention work includes access to voluntary testing and monthly condom distribution in a setting where access to condoms was previously limited. The organization supports members to attend university classes to expand their opportunities. Through use of the media and artistic events, collaboration with the police, and peer education, Fortaleciendo la Diversidad has changed perceptions, decreased prejudice, and increased recognition and acceptance of these key populations.
