Day 48: Meeting Nickaoi, Beautiful Sunny Day

This morning I met Nickaoi; she was trying to fix her tent with a broken pole and began falling down. I asked her if a Makeshift Traveler could help her, and she replied, “oh yes.” Nickaoi and I chatted about the challenges of being transgender within the unhoused community, sharing significant discrimination, and unequal access to services.

My chat with Nickaoi was very brief, as she shared that her husband was not feeling well and likely would become violent if he saw her talking to me.

Out of respect for their privacy, no picture or further information was recorded.
