In this photo taken June 10, 2015, Nikki Rose, 18, who identifies as a transgender female, poses for a photo next to a mural at Survivors Pathway, a non-profit that provides support for LGBTQ youth in Miami. Nikki dropped out of high school where she says she was harassed by her teachers and considers herself fortunate to have support from her mother, saying “the only thing calming me down from depression is my mother.” Because she has been in fist fights and verbally abused by men on the street, she carries mace, a Taser and a knife.
