A teacher from Brazil, a transgender woman by the name of Luciana Sandreli Alves, took her life on January 17, 2021. Luciana Sandreli Alves lived in Colatina, Espirito Santo, Brazil, and suffered from depression according to friends.
Profesor Alves studied at Universidade Federal de Vicosa and Universidade Federal de Minas Gerais. She taught school in the eastern town of Vitória Brazil.
Luciana Sandreli Alves is the 44th Brazilian trans person that has died since the 2020 TDoR.
“I heard now about the suicide of professor Luciana (Sandreli Alves) from Colatina ES.
Sandreli was a Trans woman and teacher and very respected by her students, where she gained respect and admiration.
Difficult to deal with depression that leads the majority of our Trans Brazilian population to commit suicide ….
May the Spirits of Light receive you, and we will be in prayer for you Sandreli because occupying spaces of respect and love is not easy for us. As he brings Almodóvar in his thematic films.
We are not to judge since we are predisposed to come to suffer depression.”
R.I.P. Luciana Sandreli Alves
