A group of trans women in Colombia have decided to combat transphobia by forming an all-trans football club.

Mariana, who was crowned Ms. Trans last year, says “with the World Cup, we are honouring and are proud of Colombia. We are trans, but we are still Colombians, and we want to be involved in Colombian society.”

Another team member adds, “We hope there will be acceptance from the community with our game. There is a tendency to fear what you don’t understand. This is a way for people to get to know us.”
