From India to San Francisco — a journey to live freely
This interview aired most recently in the August 15, 2023 episode of Crosscurrents and it originally aired August 31, 2022.
August is Transgender History Month in San Francisco and we've been sharing stories about experiences of being transgender in the Bay Area.
One segment of the trans population we may not hear a lot about is immigrants. Many queer and transgender people come to San Francisco to flee discrimination and violence in their home countries.
Anjali Rimi is one of those people. They grew up in India and were assigned as male at birth. But throughout their childhood and youth, they knew they weren't living their truth.
