Protesters demand justice following lethal arson attack on lesbians

Protesters took to the streets in Buenos Aires on Monday evening to demand justice for a deadly attack last week on four lesbians that killed three and left one fighting for her life.

Carrying placards and banners, around a hundred people gathered at Plaza Colombia to march to the boarding house where the lethal arson attack took place last Monday (May 6).

Denouncing what they described as a “lesbicide,” demonstrators called on President Javier Milei’s government to do more to tackle homophobic violence and accused the national administration of fomenting discriminatory discourse.

The horrific attack took place in Barracas last Sunday evening when a man threw a Molotov cocktail into a room shared by two lesbian couples at a boarding house in Buenos Aires.
