Trans Woman Beaten to Death

A transwoman was beaten to death in Brazil. Video of the brutal act has spread across social media and the video helped police identify some of the men who attacked her.

Many hope this video will make Brazil’s government have stricter rules on hate crimes towards trans/non-conforming people.  In October 2015- September 2016 over 123 trans people were murdered in Brazil alone.
