We can't just talk about the hatred and prejudice directed at us by other people... we have to confront our own. We all have prejudice of one sort or another. It might be based on the color of someone's skin or the language they speak, their political or religious beliefs, the size of their body or a disability they have. Maybe it's directed toward lesbians, or gay men, or straight people. Or perhaps it is directed at members of this very community.

Un homosexual y un hombre, que supuestamente lo acompañaba, fueron estrangulados la noche del viernes y sus cuerpos fueron lanzados por sus victimarios en una de las calles de Comayagüela.
El transexual fue identificado únicamente como Génesis, de entre 23 y 27 años de edad, quien al momento de ser ultimado vestía un pantalón a cuadros rojo, blusa azul, ropa íntima de mujer color morado y zapatos de dama.
Mientras que el hombre no fue identificado, pero según los investigadores tenía una edad entre los 25 a 30 años, vestía únicamente un pantalón a azul y calcetines blancos, no llevaba camisa ni zapatos.
El crimen ocurrió entre las 4:00 y 6:00 de la tarde en un lugar alejado de donde los encontraron, a eso de las 9:00 de la noche frente a la Farmacia América, entre la Tercera y Cuarta Avenida de Comayagüela.
Según el reporte de la Policía, la causa de la muerte es asfixia por estrangulamiento, pero los investigadores no establecieron el motivo del ataque, pero mantienen una hipótesis, que no revelaron.
