Chile LGBT Group Blasts Campaign against Transgender Actress

SANTIAGO – Chile’s Movilh LGBT rights organization filed a criminal complaint on Monday over “a violent, neo-Nazi campaign” against transgender actress Daniela Vega, star of the Oscar-winning film “A Fantastic Woman.”

Last Friday, the Social Patriotic Movement hoisted an anti-Vega banner from a bridge in Santiago’s upscale Las Condes neighborhood.

“Daniela Vega is a man. Truth comes before peace,” the banner read.

The message “publicly denigrates actress Daniela Vega’s gender identity and it incites hatred against transgender individuals,” Movilh said in a statement.

Movilh asked National Intelligence Agency chief Luis Masferrer to open an investigation of the incident, noting that is the first time the Social Patriotic Movement has engaged in hate speech.

“Hate speech creates an environment and gives justification for physical abuses against people by reason of their gender identity, sexual orientation or other characteristics,” the Movilh statement said.

Vega was honored Sunday with the Platino Prize for best lead actress for her role in “A Fantastic Woman,” which won the Oscar for best non-English language film.
