Nancy is a 27-year-old Lebanese trans woman. She left her country in 2017 to seek asylum in the Netherlands. In Libanon, Nancy grew up in an Islamic environment where LGBTQI+ aren’t easily accepted. At 15 she decides to come out as trans and started living on her own at 17. She got an education in nutrition and dietetics and worked as a dietician. She was also an activist for the first LGBTQI+ organization in the Arabian area, HELEM. Next year Nancy will start a master’s study at the University of Amsterdam.
