In just a single day, three trans people were brutally murdered in Colombia

In a single day in Colombia, three trans and non-binary people were brutally slain, capturing the “systematic” violence the community knows all too well.

Maní, a sex worker, was stabbed to death in Bogotá, the country’s capital city, on Tuesday (7 December) the national news outlet El Colombiano reported.

La Divaza, a homeless non-binary person, was stabbed in the chest to death in Riohacha, La Guajira after a scuffle curdled into violence, according to El Tiempo. Local activists have called on prosecutors to consider the attack a hate crime.

Christina Cantillo Martínez, a veteran LGBT+ rights activist, was shot in Santa Marta, Magdalena, while talking to her family members on the terrace outside her home, advocates said.
