Men's Health (Australia) - - Elite -

Pa­trick was chased out of her home by her fam­ily for be­ing trans­gen­der. She fled to Nairobi where per­se­cu­tion only fol­lowed her. She couldn’t go out with­out be­ing at­tacked, so she was un­able to earn any money. She was forced to move again to a refugee camp for safety and food. Still, per­se­cu­tion fol­lows her within the camp and she must live near the re­cep­tion area for safety. She hopes for a fu­ture where she is fi­nally recog­nised and her life will change for the bet­ter. Pa­trick’s story is one of mil­lions from the bot­tom of the world’s rich list.
