RIP Suzy, Icon Of Trans Struggles In Lebanon

It is with a heavy heart that we share the news of the passing of Suzy.

One of the most prominent faces of the struggles of transgender and LGBTQ individuals in Lebanon, Suzy was often captured on video pleading for donations to secure rent and sometimes, food.
