Many Evangelicals ... ? and the Catholic Church (who did NOT stop the Nazi's from the Holocaust when they could have) realize they are losing ground to the Equality movment and have amped up their rhetoric to include GENOCIDE.  This needs to be addressed by the LGBTQI and their supporters.

Here is story from Brazil. the original is in Portuguese. This is English Translation from Google. I have not edited it at all so syntax may be off.

Murder of LGBT in Brazil every 26 hours!

Murder of homosexuals and transsexuals have increased by 26% in 2012 compared to 2011 Brazil, with 336 victims, one every 26 hours, said Friday the anthropologist Luiz Mott, Gay Group of Bahia (GGB ).

"C" is shocking, almost half of all murders of transgender people in the world last year were committed in Brazil. There were 128 against 15 in the United States for example, "said the anthropologist, author of the study which identifies the last 30 years this type of crime in Brazil.
The annual survey of GGB details that 188 gays, transsexuals 128, 19 bisexual lesbians and two were killed in 2012.
The majority of victims (152) was identified in the north-east of the country, "the region by far the most homophobic Brazil," said Mr. Mott.
These 336 murders in 2012 represent an increase of 177% compared to the average of the last seven years (110 murders per year).
"The most shocking, too, is the degree of impunity. In 70% of cases, the killer has not been identified, "said Mr. Mott.
These murders are according to him, "reflecting the widespread violence and cultural homophobia."
Despite these alarming statistics, the bill of criminalization of homophobia faced resistance from Protestant and Catholic groups for years and sleeping in a drawer in Parliament.
