Three crossdressers beaten and forced to str!p by men (video)
After being harassed by some men, three crossdressers who are accused of being homos*xuals are fortunate to be alive.
The men threw 0ottles at the crossdresser and humiliated them by forcing them to strip nak£d.
On Saturday, May 1, the incident occurred at Sunset Bar in Cotonou, Benin.
The video was captured on camera by a mobile phone and shared on social media.
It attracted the attention of Hirondelle Club Benin, an NGO and LGBT+ advocacy organization, who posted it on Twitter to raise awareness about violence against transgender people.
The video caption reads: “We have just denounced an umpteenth aggression against people LGBTQi in Benin a few days before the celebration of May 17. We condemn these acts with the last rigor. We will come back for more details.”
In the video, the men are seen harassing the crossdressers. The men forced them to take off their clothes while also slapping them and throwing objects at them.
One of the victims told The Observers that the attack was planned.
One of the victims said: “My man knew I was transgender and asked me to invite my transgender friends. When we arrived, he asked me to go outside.
“Once we managed to get outside to help our friend, they began attacking the three of us. There were about 200 men there, and they forced us to strip naked while they laughed and filmed up. It was humiliating.”
The victims were able to take shelter within Hirondelle Club Benin. But they said the “whole nation”, including “our families and bosses”, viewed the video of the attack after it went viral on social media.
“We’ll never be able to find a job again,” one of the victims said. “Everyone here is against us. Even young children in the street have been [pointing] fingers at us.”
No arrests have been made.
