Diane Rodriguez, candidate for Guayas Assemblywoman representing the movement Ruptura 25, said to be the reflection of a discriminated population group in the country, thus her intention to get to the National Assembly supporting the candidacy of Norman Wray and his binomial, Angela Mendoza.
Director of the Silhouette X Association, Diane Rodriguez was born physically as a man 30 years ago, but since she can remember, has felt like a female. She is one of the representatives of the transsexual and transgender community in Guayaquil.
The candidate said that has always been ready for processes of social bonding, and recalled that three years ago she launched a legal complaint against the Civil Registry for the change of identity. She regretted that in order to make such procedure, approximately $ 18,000 are required. (MZ)
