dc.description.abstract The objective of this thesis is to bridge the gap between resiliency studies and Latina transgender women. Current studies on transgender women of color largely focus on health disparities faced by the general community. Because of this, research does not consider the unique experiences and intersectionality of Latina transgender women. In addition, research fails to focus on positive aspects of the transgender community, including resilience. In response, this thesis interviewed 5 Latina trans women through a qualitative open-ended method in order to explore their experiences of hate crimes and resilience. Highlighted themes include modes of resistance and how Latina transgender women construct narratives of personal resistance. Further implications for health interventions are discussed. en
