Fortaleza, Ceará (Brazil)
Chromada was shot multiple times while sitting outside a bar.
A 32-year-old [trans woman], identified as "Cromada", died after being shot on Monday night (27) in a bar in the Messejana neighborhood, in Fortaleza, Ceará. The crime happened a day before the LGBTQIA+ Pride Day celebrated this Tuesday (28).
Cromada was a personal friend of actor Silvero Pereira, who plays Zaquieu in TV Globo's soap opera Pantanal. Through her social media, Pereira, who fights for the fight against homophobia, regretted what happened and criticized the social shelter system for LGBTQIA + people.
They killed my friend Chrome. Travesti, black, poor, peripheral. It's been a while since we've seen each other, nor spoken to each other, but rarely have I met such a good person, such a dear one. Chromada was the victim of a racist, transphobic, unequal system. Certainly if she had been socially accepted, she would never have made decisions that would lead to such tragedy.
According to information, Cromada was sitting in a chair on the sidewalk of the bar when she was hit by shots, dying on the spot. Teams of the Military Police and Forensic Experts of the State of Ceará (Pefoce) were called to the scene. The case is being investigated by the 3rd Precinct, Department of Homicide and Protection of the Person (DHPP), of the Civil Police.
