One could expect the plights of two transgender women of about the same age and from the same, small post-Soviet conservative country—Georgia that is—to be similar. Yet their journeys are completely different, and so are their dreams.

Cecile and Nata—a 22-year-old journalism student, who goes by the name of Tornike and has come out to family and friends as gay; and a 25-year-old sex worker, who has been living by herself for the past 10 years, although never having had a family conflict because of her gender identity.
