Born to Break Barriers: A Conversation with Arianna Lint

Arianna Lint is a transgender Latina refugee from Lima, Peru. She immigrated to the US almost 20 years ago, after graduating from law school in Peru.

But after educating herself about HIV and getting involved in her community, Arianna has emerged as a leading HIV and trans rights activist. I had the opportunity to talk to Arianna about her work as an activist, starting her own organization, and how organizations can be more trans-affirming.
