Pearl Love is an outreach social worker for Translatina Network. Last Thursday, she was riding the 6 train to work when a woman sitting across from her launched into an unprovoked transphobic tirade, verbally assaulting her before eventually standing up and beating Love while the other riders did nothing.

“It was a crowded train and everyone heard it but no one helped me,” Love explains. “Now you can understand what’s happening in my everyday life. That happens all the time. But it’s my first time recording it.”

Love spoke with Mic’s Matthew Rodriguez about the incident and the struggles she faces each day as a trans woman.

“That’s just a really small thing that I face every day,” she shared. “I go to a job interview, they look at me like, ‘You’re never going to get a job. They never even waste your time asking anything about you when you look feminine.”
