Bianey Garcia – Trans Immigrant Project Lead, Make the Road New York

Bianey Garcia’s past experiences as an undocumented immigrant and sex worker have fueled her activism at Make the Road New York, where she leads the organization’s Trans Immigrant Project. She has become a go-to activist in Queens fighting for transgender people, Latinas and immigrants facing injustice. Last year, she played a key role in pushing successfully for state lawmakers to repeal its “walking while trans” law and has supported calls to decriminalize sex work.
