Three male-to-female transgenders are lucky to be alive after they were attacked by about men.
The men attacked the transgenders with bottles then humiliated them by forcing them to strip naked.
The incident occurred on Saturday, May 1, at Sunset Bar in Cotonou, Benin.
The violence was captured on cell phone video and uploaded to social media.
It caught the attention of an NGO and LGBT+ advocacy group Hirondelle Club Benin and they shared it on Twitter to spread awareness about violence against transgenders.
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.”
