Remembering Lorena Borjas
« on: April 04, 2020, 05:39:33 PM »
I've been seeing many tributes to Lorena Borjas, who died recently of COVID-19.  Here are a few:

NY Times: Lorena Borjas, Transgender Immigrant Activist, Dies at 59
The New Yorker: Remembering Lorena Borjas, the Mother of a Trans Latinx Community
CNN: Lorena Borjas, a transgender Latina activist who fought for immigrants and sex workers, has died of Covid-19
Time: 'An Activist, a Warrior, a Mother to So Many.' Lorena Borjas, Pillar of New York Trans Community, Dies From Coronavirus



She sounds like an extraordinary person who made an impact on countless others' lives.  Did anybody here know her directly?
