WATCH | Diary of a transgender woman: 'I wanted to be Zozibini Tunzi'

Meet Jasmine Juicy, a fearless trans woman who won’t let hatred keep her down.

"At first, I was very scared of going out, and then I decided screw this, I have to step into my high heels and just do what makes me happy."

The South African LGBTQ community is still mourning the loss of the fierce trans activist, Nare Mphela.

Nare fought for her right to wear the girls' uniform at her school back in 2017. The case went to the Equality Court and she won.

Nare was murdered in her home in Makopane, just over 40 kilometres from Polokwane in January. No arrests have been made yet.
