miaIn May of this year, the face of the LGBT Community, Caleb Orosco was featured in the New York Time’s under an article titled “The lonely fight against Belize’s antigay laws” which garnered much local and international exposure. Two months later, a local transgender woman from Guinea Grass Village, Orange Walk District, Mia Quetzal, is being featured in a Florida based Media Corporation called Naples Daily News.


Similar as Orosco’s plight for human rights in Belize, where homosexuality is criminalized, Quetzal reveals that facial hair has been one of her biggest insecurities living as a transgender woman. The article reads and we quote, “In the U.S. transgender people have started appearing on magazine covers and in popular television shows, but in Belize — where homosexuality is criminalized — being transgender can be dangerous, even deadly. With help from Belizean advocate Caleb Orozco, who was recently featured in New York Times Magazine for his work, Quetzal wants to build a safer Belize for transgender people”, end quote.
