The organization “Human Rights Watch” published recently a new report about Human Rights violations against transgender people in Honduras. The 45 page report details abuses based on gender identity and expression, including rape, beatings, extortion and arbitrary detention by law enforcement officials. It also documents police inaction and recurrent failure to investigate violence against transgender people. At least 17 travestis (as many as transgender people are called) have been killed in public places in Honduras since 2004.
The whole report is available at the Human Rights Watch website (http://www.hrw.org/node/83449).
