RAINN spotlights barriers faced by transgender sexual assault survivors

Leyna Bloom stars in 'Walk,' a powerful PSA by Mirimar Los Angeles.

RAINN showcased how identity and discrimination play a role in whether transgender sexual assault survivors reach out to police, shelters or rape crisis centers. The PSA, "Walk," follows actress and model Leyna Bloom as she nervously walks home in the city. Bloom can’t stop thinking about the transphobic comments she receives online and is fearful of strangers approaching her in the street. She eventually makes it home with the spot ending with the tagline, "RAINN is here for all survivors," along with resources for its hotline and website.
