The heightened risks faced by members of the LBGTIQ+ communities in El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras were tragically underscored by the killing of an internally displaced trans woman who fled her community in El Salvador after receiving threats by gangs. According to the National Civil Police, six people were reported missing daily in El Savador from January to April 2021. A Salvadoran government study on homicides and fenucides showed that 1.324 women were murdered in the country in 2020.
