Delfín, who is from the Bolivian city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, tried to seek help in government offices for her two trans children who were facing bullying and discrimination in their school when they were 16. “They told me to go to church and look for a better path, they practically sent me to pray,” Delfín said, saying she then felt targeted by the same people who were supposed to assist her and her children.
