Alexya Salvador is a Brazilian trans woman and LGBTQ rights activist. She advocates strongly for the importance of education in Brazil. Salvador is a pioneer of trans rights in a country that regularly discriminates and harms such individuals.
“In this revolution that we have lived through in recent times, being the first trans woman to adopt a child in the country that [kills transgender people] is the greatest political act of existence that I could have done. And today I can say that times are changing, that the world is no longer the same.” – Alexya Salvador
