In recent years, Mexico has changed from a very conservative culture to somewhat accepting of the LGBT community. This is the case especially in bigger cities like Mexico City, Tijuana, and Guadalajara. However, it remains to be more conservative in its ways due to its cultural and religious background. It’s slowly catching up with the rest of the world when it comes to progress in this aspect because of exposure to western pop culture as well as western practices. So as the years pass, trans women in Mexico will have the chance to live better lives.
Getting to know trans women in Mexico
Being part of the LGBT community in Mexico can be quite tough. Trans women still face discrimination in most parts of Mexico. A lot of them have experienced violence in their daily lives. Acceptance and tolerance can be 50-50 depending on family values as well as the city in which they live. It’s common for transgender women in Mexico to not come out and live their truth because of how they will be treated.
There are laws that protect individuals regarding their sexual orientation in most Mexican states. However there are no laws that protect trans individuals. There are laws that protect women in Mexico, but it is not explicitly included in the law that transsexual women are protected under it. When it comes to trans rights, Mexico still has a long way to go. This may also play a part as to why transgender women are closeted.
