Perú: Demand Investigation into Attack on Transgender street worker

Found on Blabbeando Blog a TV news magazine show filed this piece on an attack captured by television cameras: Members of a neighborhood watch group in Tarapoto, Peru, attack transgender street worker, cut her hair off, take her clothes off and make her 'do tricks' by beating her with sticks until she falls on the ground.

Las autoridades de Perú deberían respetar y proteger los Derechos Humanos de todos los ciudadanos sin discriminación por orientación sexual e identidad de genero.

Peruvian authorities should respect and protect the rights of all citizens, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity.

Chicago production company Yellow Wing Productions hosts "Bait & Tackle: A 'Fish out of Water' Film Fundraiser" for their upcoming documentary at Brooklyn's Monkey Town Saturday, February 28th at 10:00pm to raise funds for the films upcoming release. The evening will feature performances by DJ Chaz Requina (Palms Out), DJ Patrick Wimberly (Chairlift) and Elizabeth Harper & the Matinee, as well as the New York City premiere of the film's extended preview. Featured art will be for sale with proceeds benefiting the film, and the first 50 guests will receive a gift bag.

"Were so excited to bring Fish out of Water to New York," says Ky Dickens, the film's Director and Executive Producer. "Were looking forward to connecting with its GLBTQ community and their allies to get their support for our film."

Fish out of Water, Chicago's Yellow Wing Productions first documentary, tackles the seven Bible verses used to condemn homosexuality and justify marriage discrimination. With slapstick animation and quirky interviews taken everywhere from truck stops to mega-churches, Fish out of Water delivers a voice to the oppressed and informs the misled.

The evening will feature a special extended trailer created exclusively for the Bait & Tackle event, as well as live DJ sets and a performance by Elizabeth Harper & the Matinee. Harper, who Time out New York calls "A beauty with a voice like a sleepy winter afternoon," will put on a special midnight set as the evenings entertainment highlight.

Monkey Town is located in Williamsburg, Brooklyn at 58 North 3rd Street. (L Train to Bedford Avenue.) Tickets are $10 in advance and $15 at the door. This is a 21+ event. Tickets are available at brownpapertickets.com. For more information about Monkey Town, visit monkey town.com.
