Putting a spotlight on the persistent hate crimes directed towards members of the LGBTQIA community, a sibling under the rainbow family was found brutally murdered in the city of Ilagan.

As first reported by 92.9 Brigada News Cauayan City, Tatiana “Tats” Tumicad – 24 years old, single, and a resident of Barangay Alanguigan in the city – was found lifeless in a corn field in Barangay Naguilian Sur.

Based on initial investigation, Tats visited Barangay Naguilian Sur to be with friends. They momentarily left, but did not return.

When found, Tats had a mortal wound in the head and body that caused their demise.

The PNP is still searching for more evidence related to the case.

Philippines-based LGBTQIA organizations are condemning the hate crime.

For UP Babaylan, the pioneering LGBTQIA organization in the University of the Philippines, “these continued narratives of hate crimes directed towards the members of the LGBTQI community is a testament to the persistent and absurd reality that the community is still facing—one marred by injustice, systemic oppression, and violence.”
