Victory! Fernanda Milán Has been Granted Asylum In Denmark!

Trans woman Fernanda Milan has been granted asylum by the Danish goverment! Fernanda Milan, originally from Guatemala sought refuge in Denmark after her transgender advocacy endangered her life. At first it appeared she was going to be forced into returning to Guatemala which for Fernanda would have been a death warrant.

Enter the worlds transgender and allies advocates! Together we made our outrage be heard and the Danish Government listened to us!

Please read these articles by my amazing friend and advocate Natacha Kennedy who's grass roots activism was crucial to this success:

Will trans woman Ms. Anna Grodzka Nomination For Deputy Speaker Pass The Conservative dominated Polish Parliament?

It seems is that Ms. Grodzka nomination may receive a up vote in this conservative Catholic country's Parliament. But how could that be?

Polityka, politics politics!

Recently there was a bill introduced in Parliament for civil unions between same sex couples which was dismissed out of hand. Didn't even get discussed.

Ms. Grodzka's nomination by the minority liberal party quickly followed on the heals of that defeat and is seen as a challenge to the dominate conservatives and fence sitting parties to show they are in fact progressive as they say they are.
