Photographer and trans activist Florencia Güimaraes Garcia and Alejandro Pablo Rodriguez met almost two decades ago. In 2016 they finally tied the knot, six years after same-sex marriage was made legal in Argentina. Florencia was forced to leave her family when she came out, leaving her no choice but to pursue sex work. With Alejandro's support, Florencia stopped doing sex work and embarked on a new life.
