Sofía Jiménez Poiré, 25×25 Young Leader

Country: Mexico

Bio: Sofía has a strong and diverse history of taking action for human rights. In the past, she has worked with Espacio Mujeres to help women and children who have suffered domestic and intimate partner violence, and with Yaaj México to advocate for the rights of LGBTQI+ youth.

“Cis-hetero-sexism stigmatizes LGBTQI+ people so we can’t enjoy our lives and bodies in the way we deserve. For me, it meant living in fear of adults finding out about my girlfriend when I was a teenager; now, it’s fear of having my human rights violated for being a queer woman.”
