Alexandra Peña Vizcaya

Alexandra died after being shot in the skull and right leg. The crime could be related to that of a recently killed gay man as both victims had their penis and face cut off.

Her loved ones explained that she was a very active person. In addition to working in styling, was dedicated to organizing birthday parties and any other type of celebrations. She stood out dancing in a group of “garotas”, so “everyone was looking for it”.

She had been the winner of the Miss Gay Venezuela contest, in which she participated in the years 2009 and 2010.

“She led the floats of Henri Falcón during the carnival, she was the first to leave with her wings (…) She was the queen of the Why Not nightclub.”
