Movements and Moments 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. This first trans high school provides a gender-sensitive and public education that favors their insertion into the educational and labor system.
