Orange County, California
Transgenders who have crossed the Tijuana border into the United States to escape persecution in their homeland are at a high risk of being exploited. They are often in desperate need of money, unable to earn a living or speak English, and a fear of going to the police makes them easy prey for sex traffickers and pimps. Their stories are similar, oftentimes molested by their relatives at a young age only to be shunned by family & society for their sexuality. Transgenders’ customers include a wide range of people and professionals, such as police officers, military, lawyers, professional businessmen, and usually married men.
