Interview with Lizethe Alvarez Echeverry


Monika: Today’s interview will be with Lizethe Alvarez Echeverry, a remarkable woman and transgender activist, living in Denmark. Hello Lizethe!
Lizethe: Hi Monika! Thanks for the invitation!
Monika: You have worked for over 20 years for different organizations that defend human rights in such countries as Colombia, Germany, Spain and Denmark. Could you say more about these organisations and your work there?
Lizethe: It was a great experience for me, where I learned a lot about human rights in different periods of my life. For example, in Colombia I worked in the field of HIV/AIDS; in Germany I worked for the rights of transpersons and in Spain I focused more on laboral insertion for immigrant transpersons. Now in Denmark I work for the visibility and human rights for transgendered couples.

Interview with Jessica Janiuk


Monika: Hello Jessica! How lovely of you to agree to be included in my series of “Interviews with Transgender Icons”.
Jessica: Thanks for having me.
Monika: What do you do for a living these days?
Jessica: I’m a web developer for a trailer hitch company based in the state of Wisconsin, in the US of A. It’s a very glamorous job involving multiple computer monitors and pale skin from lack of sunlight.
Monika: Where did you grow up?
Jessica: I grew up in a small suburb of Milwaukee, Wisconsin called Delafield. It had between 5,000 and 8,000 people while I was growing up. I think it’s larger now though due to urban sprawl.
