Russia’s Justice Ministry is gearing up to make it tougher for transgender people to change their gender markers in their passports, which will make gender transition tougher in general. But Russian LGBTQ+ people have denounced the move, including one transgender woman who is going public with her identity, despite the risk to her personal safety, for the first time because of “the importance of the situation.” Alisa Lesnaya wanted to share her real name and told Newsweek removing transgender people’s ability to update their passports and paperwork will be “a very difficult and traumatic experience” for that population.
