Argentina
Yésica is a cumbia singer, an activist for the right to legal abortion and the separation of the Church of the State. She is 28 years old, a lesbian and lives with her 7 year old daughter and her partner. On June 4 she went to visit her mother in Villa Ballester. There was a strong argument between her mother and her aunt, Yésica approached to separate them and her cousin Walter Rodríguez Lazarte (17) hit her in the head with a rusty pipe of plumbing screaming “lesbian whore, lesbian shit”. She felt tingling in her head and fell to the floor. Her cousin hit her again with the pipe in his head.

El 4 de junio fue a visitar a su madre en Villa Ballester. Hubo una discusión fuerte entre su madre y su tía, Yésica se acercó a separarlas y su primo Walter Rodríguez Lazarte (17) la golpeó en la cabeza con un caño oxidado de plomería al grito de “lesbiana puta, lesbiana de mierda”. Yésica sintió hormigueo en la cabeza y cayó al piso. Su primo volvió a pegarle con el caño en la cabeza.
