Justice for Queer Activist Mariya/Anil

      Mumbai (Bombay), India

Sexuality and gender minorities as a community braving the system of patriarchal capitalism have faced various kinds of physical attacks for years from those who are not tolerant of diversities of gender expression or sexuality. This time, it has been brutal, and Mariya / Anil was found with a slit neck, stab wounds on the stomach, and chili powder sprinkled all over her body. We would like to bring to your attention and voice our anger over the growing tendency in Kerala to use brutal physical violence against expressions of diversity.

      Anil’s murder is a brutal signal from the murdering homophobic patriarchy. We have to gather strength together to fight for the right of all trans/queer/nonconforming people to live with dignity and equality.
