Monika: Today’s interview will be with Lizethe Alvarez Echeverry, a remarkable woman and transgender activist, living in Denmark. Hello Lizethe!
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.
