Si la société accepte mieux désormais les homosexuelles et les lesbiennes, ce n’est pas encore le cas pour les personnes transgenres.Aminata Farmo a rencontré trois transgenres qui se butent tous les jours à  la discrimination, à  l’intimidation, à  l’intolérance des gens et à  la difficulté de faire accepter leur changement de sexe.
