Reaching for Reparations

Persistent discrimination has hampered healing for LGBT victims targeted during Colombia’s half-century internal conflict, writes Sarah Hayley Barrett.

LGBT people, who now have the right to marry and adopt in Colombia, are struggling to secure their share of reparations.

Of 8.5 million survivors of the conflict registered for assistance and reparations, at least 2,243 identify as LGBT. But activists say scores more are too afraid to register.

12 years of prosecuting thousands of paramilitary fighters has resulted in just 1 sentence for crimes against LGBT people.
