Alejandra's story


Twenty years ago, a young indigenous man fled Oaxaca, Mexico for the United States, running away from prejudice and in search of opportunities his hometown would have never provided while pledging to someday return to make things better for the loved ones left behind. Today, this resilient spirit is returning home as Alejandra, a transgender woman and healthcare advocate whose faith and love for her family has fueled her path towards breaking gender, faith, educational and transnational limitations.

Libertad is a transnational tale of solidarity and a look at the pivotal role allies played along Alejandra's journey to claim her place in the universe as she continues to help others find themselves. As her loved ones await Alejandra's return to the place she longs for yet sometimes fears, will her journey come full circle or will prejudice prevail?
