Psychologist and transgender activist in defense of human rights for LGBTI people, women, indigenous people, children and people with disabilities. She is an activist who has participated in several social achievements in Ecuador such as the promotion of the Youth Law. She was the founder of the Asociación Silueta X, which helped achieve the right to Civil Unions and Gender on IDs for transsexual people, and successfully brought a lawsuit against a media outlet for discrimination against the LGBTI Community.

She has also worked on the first trans children’s story in Ecuador, and given visibility to family diversity during her husband’s pregnancy. She successfully made the first registration of a name with maternal surnames in Ecuador thanks to the law that helped put in place. She was nominated for the David Kato Awards in 2014 and as one of the best activists in 2016 for Front Line Defenders. She is currently the president of the Ecuadorian Federation of LGBTI Organizations and is the first LGBTI openly transsexual to be elected as a member of Congress.
