Starting in 2016, a Regional Information Network of LGBTI rights organizations in Latin America and the Caribbean joined forces to launch the first-ever international database on homicides of LGBTI people.


Dubbed “SInViolencia LGBT,” it is the first and only regional initiative that seeks to apply quality control standards and the analytical framework of “prejudice-based violence” to produce robust, comparable, and publicly accessible data about homicides of LGBTI people in Latin America and the Caribbean.


We make our information public and accessible so that governments and international organizations around the region can use it to develop effective, data-driven policies aimed at preventing, investigating, and punishing violence against LGBTI people, especially when it is motivated by prejudice against the victim’s sexual orientation or gender identity.
