Brazil gains committee to monitor violence against LGBT+

Our mission is to combat violence motivated by the sexual condition and gender identity of victims

Since April 5th, Brazil has had a Monitoring Committee for the National Strategy to Combat Violence against LGBTQIA+ People, whose mission will be to combat violence motivated by the victims’ sexual condition and gender identity. Homophobia is a crime, following a judgment by the Federal Supreme Court in 2019, just like racism. The penalty can vary between 1 and 5 years, depending on the homophobic act, in addition to a fine.

The Dossier of Deaths and Violence against LGBTI+ in Brazil, prepared by the Observatory of Deaths and Violence against LGBTI+ in Brazil, reports that, in 2022, there were 273 violent LGBT deaths in the country, with 228 murders, mainly of trans and gay people, in addition 30 suicides and 15 other causes. The survey shows that Brazil murdered an LGBT person every 32 hours, in 2022.

The ordinance published by the Ministry of Human Rights and Citizenship (MDHC) in the Official Gazette of the Union, provides that the work of the Monitoring Committee for the National Strategy to Combat Violence against LGBTQIA+ People will last for two years, with the possibility of extension.

During this period, the group must monitor, monitor and support the articulation and implementation of public policies to combat rights violations in this social segment. In practice, the committee must collaborate technically on programs, plans, projects and actions that have the purpose of protecting and promoting the defense of the rights of LGBTQIA+ people in situations of vulnerability or social risk.

Furthermore, the representation must monitor violence data with the development of a methodology for compiling these indicators to serve as a basis in decision-making processes. The strategy must also build the Network to Combat Violence against LGBT+ People, made up of public and non-governmental entities.

At the end of each year, the committee must prepare a final report with a detailed analysis of progress, challenges faced and recommendations for improving this strategy.

The Committee will be composed of three representatives from the National Secretariat for the Rights of LGBTQIA+ People, one member of the National Council for the Rights of LGBTQIA+ People; and two representatives from civil society. In addition to them, representatives of other public or private bodies and entities, companies, experts, researchers and members of the LGBTQIA+ community will be able to attend meetings of the collegiate as guests and, therefore, without the right to vote, as a way of strengthening social participation.
