Lorena Borjas: Why she kicks ass
- She is a Mexican trans activist, and health educator for the transgender community.
- She started the Lorena Borjas Community Fund; which is a volunteer-run project created to institutionalize the support that Lorena has provided for years. The LBCF Fund supports low-income gay, bisexual, lesbian, transgender, queer, questioning, intersex, and gender non-conforming immigrants avoid the collateral consequences associated with criminal convictions, jail time and court appearances.
- She works with the AIDS Center of Queens County, and with Trans Latinas, a collective of transsexual Latinas that strive to create more tolerance within the Latino community and among the authorities.
She sounds badass!

In America, this would have earned her a horrible reputation, probably cost her her career with the police force, and would have been a controversy that would have somehow “shocked” the media and therefore the public. Instead, she was declared a hero, and now holds a high position in her field. Well done, China!
Twenty-nine year old police officer, Jiang Xiaojuan, left her six month old baby with her mother to take part in disaster relief efforts, after the 2008 earthquake.
Xiaojaun breastfed nine babies during her relief work and was nicknamed “The police mom”.
Since then she was appointed to the Communist Party of China Committee of the Jiangyou Public Security Bureau and is now the bureau’s vice commissar. This was after she was awarded the titles of “hero and model police officer” and “excellent member of the communist party” – all for her breastfeeding efforts in the field.
What did Jiang Xiaojuan have to say about it? Well, according to the CNN article,
“I think what I did was normal,” she said. “In a quake zone, many people do things for others. This was a small thing, not worth mentioning.”
“I feel about these kids I fed just like my own. I have a special feeling for them. They are babies in a disaster.”
She fed up to nine babies, and she’s still feeding two children whose mothers lost their milk during the events of the quake because of the stress. What an incredible lady.

Contrary to many beliefs, you don’t actually need a fucking life story reason to get a tattoo.
