Carla Machado

I am a Brazilian transexual woman and I have been working as a language teacher and translator (English, Spanish, Portuguese and French) since 1988. I also coordinate a project with about 200 transvestites and transexual women who work as prostitutes in the streets of Sao Paulo. I am a class leader in the city where I live in the means of Sexual Diversity, and one of national representatives of Transexual People in Brazil. I am very interested on Education matters, considering I was a victim of the attempt of exclusion caused by prejudice against my identity condition, specially during my teenage years. I am specially interested in helping on this fight.
