In this photo taken May 1, 2015, Kassidy Suarez, 22, who identifies as a transgender female, poses for a photo in her bedroom in an apartment she shares with her mother in Miami. After coming out at 15, first as a gay young man, and then at age 17 as a transgender woman, Kassidy dropped out of high school, met rejection by her family and ended up homeless. She spent several years on the streets, dabbled with drugs and engaged in survival sex work. With the help of Project SAFE, Suarez found housing, counseling and a support network. She is now focused on getting her GED. (AP Photo/Lynne Sladky)
