Mazen Masoud's #FightRacism in Italy

Mazen Masoud is a human rights activist from Libya who now lives in Bologna, Italy as a refugee. He is an intersex, trans and black person fighting racism.


I am Mazen, a Libyan refugee living in Italy since three years. I was born intersex, my family has chosen a female name for me. So this was the first episode of discrimination against me.

I have tried so much with other activists to change our culture in Libya, so all LGBTI people could live safely without discrimination or the risk of losing their lives.
