Trans rights becomes a life and death issue in Peru


A wave of murders of trans women in Peru — six since the beginning of the year, after eight all of last year — has exposed a country unable or unwilling to protect trans people. And it has triggered protests demanding urgent action against gender violence. “Justice! Justice! Justice!” The voices of 70 trans women bounced off the front of the police station in the center of Lima in February 2023, generating an echo blocks away. Propped by banners and raised fists, they called out the names of the murdered victims in a roll call that demanded their country take note and stop the violence.
