|Golpiza a Transexual en Honduras|
The video a transsexual Honduran beaten by a military police in San Pedro Sula has caused commotion and outrage in Honduras.
Gay Star News is reporting that the police are denying they were involved claiming the video was ‘manipuated’.
Honduras has the worlds highest murder rate of transgender people according to the 2013 TDOR report 2013: “The update shows reports of murdered trans people in 26 countries in the last 12 months, with the majority from Brazil (95), Mexico (40), the USA (16), and Venezuela (15), followed by Honduras (12), Colombia (12), and El Salvador (5). While Brazil, Mexico, and the USA have the highest absolute numbers, the relative numbers show even more worrisome results for some countries with smaller population sizes. Honduras, for instance, has a rate of 1.5 reported trans killings per million inhabitants, for El Salvador the rate is 0.71, while for Brazil the rate is 0.49, for Mexico the rate is 0.36, and for the USA the rate is 0.05. In Asia most reported cases have been found in India (8), and in Europe in Turkey (5) and Italy (5).
