For all transgender people forgotten in the mists of the time, for all those we cannot mention because we could not learn about their experiences, for those buried in common graves, labeled "unidentified", violated to death by denying their identity , their clothes, buried according to "their sex" and the opinions of "their society".

For those detained solely for their condition of being, persecuted by the security forces under the "crimes" of being migrants, poor, trans people.

For all the transgender women killed by violence or HIV and even now by COVID-19. For those who disappeared even in the midst of organizing and visibility steps. For all the transgender women killed by violence or killed by HIV and even now by COVID-19. For those who disappeared even in the midst of organization and visibility steps.

For those who continue to leave their blood spread throughout the streets, towns, villages, furrows, fields, pastures, highways, roads, even their own houses throughout Guatemala, due to intolerance and fanaticism.

For the memory of those that we cannot identify and for whom no one gives a reason for their existence or disappearance.

For our ancestors, friends, street companions, to our past for survival in sex work that swept away, sweeps away their lives. A prayer in his memory and with the clear conviction that «No memory, no history»..
