Cecilia was shot 30 times .

On the night of Friday, January 11, the [trans woman] Cecilia Marahouse, known for her gay club shows in our state, was cowardly murdered with 30 shots near AV José Bastos in Fortaleza.

The LGBT population of our state has been shocked by this news and Cecilia's friends and fans are using Facebook to pay tribute and ask for justice.

That may never come, because as we know for the authorities unfortunately a murdered gay, transvestite or lesbian is just another number in a statistic!
