“Don’t Punish myself for Who we Am”Systemic Discrimination Against Transgender feamales in Lebanon
Once I worked at the restaurant, my personal employer stated, ‘Why don’t you cut your tresses? Exactly Why Do your pluck their eyebrows?’ I mentioned i prefer my personal tresses and I desire to build it, so I can donate they to a cancer middle for the kids. I stated this to persuade him, and he ended up being fine. Then their partner came and advised him, ‘This boy was gay. If the guy works here, I’m not going to work here.’ They fired me, and I also needn’t worked since. 
We regularly just work at a beauty shop in Beirut. They regularly know me as ‘Junior’ since when I began, I found myself not enough and mayn’t reach the customer, so they put a ladder for my situation to run. I left the salon a manager, after 9 decades. They fired myself while I began to look like a woman, and now that i’m shemale,  [the owner] wouldn’t allow me to work around. The owner informed me if I put a t-shirt and remove my boobs, he’d I would ike to continue operating there. But the method we seem now, i’ll push him extreme pity and scare off clients. I would personally like to have a genuine task, nonetheless they don’t employ united states, incase they actually do, we get verbally and psychologically mistreated until we cannot breathe any longer. All this work torture for a $500 salary; I’d quite not. 
The International labor Organization, in a 2019 document,  expressed focus over Lebanon’s problem setting positioned and adhere to intercontinental work requirements on arbitrary termination, security against discrimination on any reasons, and corruption in the workplace. 
My personal mothers lately approved me as a trans girl. None of this trans girls i am aware have their moms and dads’ help, and so I consider me most happy. But my dad try unwell and cannot operate and my mom try a housewife.
