Kate (alias) a male to female transgender refugee from South Korea, sits on her bed in a room she rents in Surrey, BC., on May 27, 2014. Kate came to Canada from South Korea after being conscripted to the military. Kate identifies as female and was not comfortable being forced to live and shower with strange men for two years of service. She was told she had to get a sex change to avoid service, join the military or be imprisoned. Kate had a successful hearing earlier in May and will eventually become a permanent resident.
