To capture the inner feelings and to understand the struggles that transgender people have to face, we conducted art and writing workshops in a prefecture assistencial project in São Paulo city, which aim was to help transgender people in poverty to return and complete their studies by the end of high school. A remarkable moment for all of us.

As a result, Vinicius came with  a very sensitive text, in a form of a diary of a child that discovers herself a transgender, while express her emotions trough her art.
