Filmed Attack on Peruvian Trans Prostitute

A Peruvian television station was invited to a planned attack on a local prostitute who is a “travesti” – a MTF trans prostitute. It aired on television, and was later aired with a longer segment.

Blabbeando covered it, as did Queers United.

Note: prostitution is not illegal in Peru.

  1. Where to begin. I don’t know what I was more offended by – what happened to Techi, or the exploitation of the media – that video was horrendous. They showed her humiliation and degradation repeatedly, over and over and over, further victimizing her. And wtf with the shots of the drag performer putting on makeup? GAH, the whole incident. Horrendous.
