Video of 20 men beating a Brazilian Trans Woman has emerged

Brazilian trans woman being beatenWarning. The video contains extreme violence.

We have previously reported about the Trans woman attacked by 20 men, destroys her FFS and the susquent revelation by her in a local blog that the Brazilian trans woman was attacked by… 20 cis gay men, apparently.

That same blog has posted a video of the attack, which we have in turn shared. It is a potent reminder to those who belittle or dehumanize the victimization of the trans minority that this violence is real and is happening every day.

Melissa Hudson is a young events promoter and makeup artist was attacked by a group of about 20 men. She got bruises on her face and body including the breakdown of stitches of a facial feminization surgery she underwent last December, and had two cell phones stolen from her.

The complaint filed with the police only listed robbery, without any mention of the fact that the victim was transgender and the suspicion that the crime was motivated by prejudice because of her transgender condition as the aggressors were shouting several transphobic slogans at her during the attack, and the Police kept misgendering her the whole time.

Later melissa gave an interview where she affirmed she couldn’t identify the attackers, but she could clearly see that the perpetrators were cis gay men.

Now a video has surfaced showing part of the attack. Someone, presumably with a cell phone, recorded a video of part of the attack.

Careful, people more sensitive may find this video shocking.
