Ivanna was robbed and murdered in her apartment. Two suspects have been arrested.

The murder of a 28-year-old woman, found on September 17, 2021 in her apartment in Paris, France, has caused great consternation.

Ivanna Angeline Macedo Silva belonged to the LGTBI community and worked in the beauty industry in France. His body was found in his apartment in the city of Courbevoie, west of Paris.

His mother, Libertad Silva Agurto, lives in the village of Cachipampa (Peru) and asks the French authorities to clarify the facts:

“ My daughter was robbed, then her life was taken, and so far two Peruvians have been arrested as suspects in this crime. I will go to France to repatriate her body to Peru so that she can benefit from a Christian burial, ”she told the Casmian Best Cable channel.

Acceptess-T and the trans communities are in mourning once again. Two trans women died this week.

Sasha a 22 year old trans woman took her own life. She had the support of her family and was very well surrounded, but the heavy weight of everyday and institutional transphobia drove her to suicide.

Ivana, a 31-year-old Peruvian trans female sex worker, was murdered in her apartment. Her body was found last night. It was her friends who raised the alert to the authorities.

With the agreement of the two families, our association will ensure that the rights of Sasha and Ivana are respected, and that Justice does its duty. We will not let any errors go by on the part of the administrations or on the part of the media.

Any form of reproduction of transphobia will be denounced. Our deep condolences go first to their families and friends. We send a particular message to trans communities, you are not alone.

In this process of fighting transphobia, you can count on us, we are here to support you. Do not be discouraged, together we will make it happen! In difficult times, call on us!

A march was held for Sasha and Ivanna on 10th October 2021.
