Queer Trailblazers 2/50: Maryam Khatoon Molkara

Our second spotlight is on Maryam Khatoon Molkara!  While there is still so much that needs to be done for queer rights in Iran, Molkara’s courage and determination has made it the second most prolific nation in the world for SRS, thanks in part to her work with the Imam Khomeini Charity Foundation, which helps other trans people pay for the procedure. Unfortunately, there’s not much about her personal life online, but I think it’s especially important to share the stories of those who are so unknown, and I’d like to give a big shout out to @makingqueerhistory for writing so completely about her life.

You can find out more about her life here, here, and here!
