LGBTI group holds protest in Honduras
2012-09-19

Honduran LGBTI organization APUVIMEH held a protest on the steps of the public prosecutor's office in the country's capital of Tegucigalpa Sept. 13, according to an organizational press release that the Chicago Religious Leadership Network on Latin America provided.

This monthly demonstration urged officials to arrest prosecute and imprison the people who assassinated LGBT leader Walter Trochez—killed Dec. 13, 2009—and the many other LGBT Hondurans that have been killed since a coup that took place that same year.

A press release from APUVIMEH reads, in part, "We now demand our rights from the Honduran state, the most essential of which are freedom of association, health, freedom of expression, education, employment, and especially the right to life.

"We have been killed in the most brutal and inhuman ways, in extreme ways that have never before been experienced by our community— so much so that is has impacted the very heart of our organizations. In the north of Honduras we now count 82 murders (2009-2012). As such, trans, gay men, lesbians, their families and organizations, in the defense of human rights, have come together to denounce impunity for these killings. The president of the Republic, Porfirio Lobo, himself admits that none of those responsible for these murders have been put in prison.

"For these reasons, we come to demand justice on the 13th of each month which is the anniversary—and today it has been two years and nine months—of the assassination of our companion Walter Orlando Trochez, who was Secretary of APUVIMEH, a leader of the LGBTTI community, an activist among persons with HIV and a human-rights defender."
