LGBTQ rights in South America are a major topic of discussion these days. A recent lawsuit filed in Honduras set precedent for LGBTQ protections throughout the region. The case was being heard by the Inter-American tribunal and was their first ruling on transphobic and LGBTQphobic violence against a person within its jurisdiction.
