LGBT in Honduras, an interview with LGBT Leader Pepe Palacios post election day
Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans people in Honduras face several challenges: one of the poorest countries in the Western Hemisphere, a murder rate that is the highest in the world, brutal opposition by the Catholic and Protestant churches and their allies in the government.
The United States is far from blameless in this situation. In this short film, LGBT Honduran leader Pepe Palacios explains why.
