Sophia Kass is a transgender woman and asylum seeker from Lebanon, Middle East. Diagnosed with HIV in 2013 then kidnapped in 2014 while on her way home from an underground LGBT club in Beirut, she decided to move to the United States to protect her physical safety and pursue her mission of advocating for the healthcare and legal rights of Lebanese and Arab people of transgender experience. Sophia joined Transgender Law Center because she believes in initiatives such as Positively Trans to empower trans and GNC individuals to challenge and change inequities, stigma, and discrimination.
