Trans community in Spain calls for inclusion amid pandemic


Madrid, Jun 9 (EFE) .- The LGBTQ community is one of those minorities that could benefit from the atypical circumstances due to the coronavirus pandemic in terms of job opportunities. SOUNDBITES OF:-BRITTANY CHAVARRÍA:"In the streets, we suffer discrimination and when you're a trans or part of the LGBTQ community and try to find a job or you want to study, they 'll send you to the streets.""Some people are at risk of dying. In my case, since I'm a determined person, I suffered a lot during the first months and during the time I worked in Costa Rica I was between life and death for three months. They brought me to the hospital, I spent two months and 26 days in a very bad condition." -JORGE GUERRA:"It's very difficult to picture the job reality of trans community in Spain because there is no reliable data or figures. It's a fact that the unemployment rate (among this community) is very high comparing it to the rest of the population and it's also a fact that their job reality is linked to precarious, irregular jobs...and sometimes is connected with sex."

In a bid to remedy this, the government has just introduced a 1 percent quota of trans employees in the public sector. FRANCE 24's team reports.
