Mocha Celis Travesti-Trans Non-Binary School

Mocha Celis is the first trans school in Latin America. It is an inclusive, public and free secondary school with a focus on gender, sexual and cultural diversity. It has been operating in Buenos Aires since 2012, the year in which Argentina's Gender Identity Law was passed. It was designed to provide a response to the historical exclusion suffered by trans people and travestis. “La Mocha” has more than a hundred students every year between 16 and 60 years old. People with different identity constructs, single mothers, racialized people, sexual workers – they all study at La Mocha. This first trans high school provides a gender-sensitive and public education that favors their insertion into the educational and labor system.
