We have prepared a series of reports on the human rights of transgender people, among them sexual minorities who are living as marginalized members of our society. You'll remember, Sergeant Byun Hee-soo, who was forced to flee from the military a while ago, and a student who was frustrated to enter the university earlier this year. Today (22th), let's first listen to the stories of transgender people living with us, and then we will look at the transgender population data analyzed by SBS.
Reporter Bae Jeong-hoon, reporter Jae-young Choi, and reporter Bae Yeon-woon will deliver this one by one.

Mr. Lim ran as a proportional representative for the Justice Party in the last general election.
He was trying to get into the institutional system and make the voice of transgender.
[Impurun / Transgender Politician: I think that if I'm a minority, I should be a society equipped with a social safety net that allows me to live ordinary lives without discrimination. I want to create a society like that.]
