One suicide Two Murdered in Mexico

Year  after year transgender people worldwide end their lives because of hatred and rejection from society. In most cases this pain comes from being rejected by the general public. But sometimes that rejection comes from the ‘LGBT’ community for not ‘complying’ with the stereotypes that society dictates.

A  young Mexican woman, Chanel Siqueiros, 24, had been suffering transphobic bullying from her own transgender community and from gay men which led to her suicide on 20th December, according to close sources consulted by Trans Pride (an activist blog) who announced this sad news.

Still in Mexico, a trans woman was found dead on the downtown area of Chihuahua. Apparently her aggressor beat her and then smashed her head with a stone.

She was found in the intersection of Ignacio Mejia and Melchor Ocampo streets, where she was identified by neighbors as Karlita Gallegos, 65, who was known to engage in prostitution.

Agents from the Attorney General (FGE) arrived at the scene of the crime to start the investigations. So far no arrests for this crime have been made.
