Here is Soraya Santiago (on the left), a politician, and trans activist, I believe her to be the first transgender woman to undergo SRS in #PuertoRico, walking along @CarmenYulinCruz during San Juan 2019 Pride Parade. Rest In Power Soraya, you will be missed.

I just got word that Soraya Santiago died. She was a titan when it came to trailblazing for transgender rights. Her personal fight started 40yrs ago. Imagine the transphobia and utter ignorance she ran up against then.
I met her this year in Puerto Rico, her beloved homeland.

Santiago died of cancer early Tuesday at her home in the north coastal city of Carolina, activist Pedro Julio Serrano told The Associated Press.
