Brazil Court Puts Homophobia and Transphobia in Crime

The Brazilian Constitutional Court has turned homophobia and transphobia into a crime. A question was raised in February, but the process could not be completed due to procedures. So far, the process is complete.

The Brazilian Supreme Court has decided to punish crimes of sexual orientation and gender by six votes to five in accordance with the applicable law on racism. According to the law, people who had sexism with a sexual orientation in Brazil receive three years in prison and fines.

Supreme Court Vice President Louis Fuchs said homophobic violence was widespread due to the game he played. “Homophobic crimes are just as disturbing as physical violence,” he said.

Activists say the solution, which is the result of 20 years of effort, will provide real protection for the LGBT + “Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender +” community, which is constantly being attacked.

At least 142 LGBT killings were committed in Brazil in 2019

“We cannot turn a blind eye to those who are raped and killed every day,” said David Miranda, one of Brazil’s most famous politicians. Mayu George, director of GBT’s Mothers for Diversity, said:

“If a person is threatened only by his existence, there can only be resistance, no existence.”

According to a recently published study, in 2019 alone, 141 Brazilian LGBT people died as a result of a murder. Gay Group of Bahia, Brazil’s largest LGBT organization, has announced that LGBT people are killed in Brazil every 25 hours.

President Bolsonaro is known for his homophilic speeches.

Jair Bolsonaro, who was elected president on January 1, 2019, is known for his homophonic rhetoric. Before becoming president, Bolsonaro clearly expressed his position on the equality of married and homosexual couples in the hate language that he used. Bolsonaro told reporters that his country would not allow him to become a “paradise for gay tourism.”

Brazil has had equality in marriage since 2013, but LGBT people are worried about Bolsonaro’s rhetoric.

The Decision For The Netflix’s Gay Jesus Film

In Brazil, a judge ruled that the film, in which Jesus was portrayed as homosexual, was removed from the digital film and television series Netflix.

The film “The First Temptation of Christ” angered the conservative Christians in the country.
