Fernanda Milan is a 22-year-old transgender woman and activist from Guatemala.
In 2009, Fernanda fled persecution to seek safety and asylum in Denmark. Fernanda has now been told that Danish law does not recognise gender identity as a motive for persecution.
This is despite a 2011 Directive of the European Parliament (2011/95/EU Article 10d), which specifically mentions gender identity as a reason for persecution.
Fernanda has been informed she will be deported back to Guatemala on 17 September.
