Every 21 hours, a transperson is killed in Brazil. In fact, 40% of all recorded trans murders in the world since 2008 have occurred in Brazil. What makes this figure all the more horrifying is that so far, in 2016, the number stands at a shocking 42% of all transgender killings. All this data has been compiled by the Trans Murder Monitoring Project (TMM) - an initiative by Transgender Europe (TGEU) and the online magazine Liminalis.
