Fernanda was hit over the head several times and stabbed more than 20 times. Her head was crushed and her face torn.

Police believe that her killing took place between midnight and 1 am.


Few people will pay attention to the cruel way in which they took the life of Fernanda, her death will only become one more factor in addition to the index of murders of LGBTs in Brazil.

I remember that in some conversations with Fernanda, who was present in all sessions of the Chamber, she showed concern for the growing culture of prejudice, of which she and several LGBTS were victims in the city. I remember that in the vote on the Law that instituted the Municipal Day to Combat Homophobia, Fernanda was present as living proof of this prejudice.

Today, unfortunately, it is definitive proof of this sense of aversion and hatred that we need to banish from our relationships with other human beings, homophobia!

Fernanda, go in peace!
