Moms for Transgender Equality: Ofelia

by Hayley Miller February 16, 2016

Ofelia, a mother of three, lives in Los Angeles with her three children, including her transgender daughter, Zoey, who is 14 years old.

“It doesn’t make sense how people can define you without knowing you. It just doesn’t,” Ofelia said in a new HRC video. “If you look at Zoey and you see her, she’s a girl.”

Ofelia has not only supported Zoey in her own home, but has lobbied on behalf of the transgender community in Sacramento, working for AB 1266, the School Success and Opportunity Act, and the TRUTH Project.

“I would like her to live in a world where she doesn’t have to fight to exist,” Ofelia concluded.

While Ofelia and Zoey have become vocal advocates for transgender youth, many LGBT young people lack crucial support from their families, and instead are rejected, leaving them at risk for homelessness, substance abuse, depression, and suicide. Up to 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBT.
