3,500 murders of LGBTIQ+ people between 2014 and 2020 – violence against LGTBIQ+ people is an emergency in Latin America and the Caribbean. Thousands of them are victims for reasons related to prejudice against their sexual orientation or gender identity.
Although in all the countries of the region the situation is dramatic, there are some that are worse: Colombia, Mexico and Honduras concentrated 89% of the total number of victims in 2020.
In Colombia, one LGBTIQ+ person is murdered every week, according to the Ombudsman’s report that analyzes data from 2021 and 2022. In addition, cases of non-lethal violence due to prejudice have increased. The places where these crimes were most reported are in the Caribbean departments – exactly where the story of the movie I’M CRIS FROM TIERRA BOMBA begins.
Violence because of prejudice is a form of gender-based violence driven by the desire to punish those seen as defying social norms of gender and sexuality – it affects thousands of LGBTIQ+ people throughout Latin America.
The film I’M CRIS FROM TIERRA BOMBA draws attention to the vulnerability of LGBTIQ+ people through Cristian’s story with the film AND an innovative impact campaign using NFTs.
