ID information was edited by us, Nazila Muradova shared the passport openly.

Activist Gulnara Mehdiyeva said on Facebook: "We know that if a citizen would fit into social molds, the passport would never be shared. This is a clear transphobia. "

“Such cases reduce confidence, minimize the confidentiality of our personal information.”

Another activist, Hamida Giyasbayli, said: "As citizens of this country, we will not be able to rely our personal information on those who abuse their power, so that tomorrow some information will not be welcomed, and it means our passport can be shared."
