LGBT, secularista e humanista: "O ressentimento contra a felicidade alheia é o maior atestado de infelicidade própria que alguém pode dar a si mesmo. Todo fundamentalista, por adiar a felicidade para o além-mundo, se ressente da felicidade dos outros. Por isso, ele abana as chamas de seu próprio inferno para cima daqueles que, ignorando seu esforço para estragar tudo, constroem sua felicidade aqui e agora da melhor maneira possível." Sergio Viula

Igor Xavier murdered with five shots in the city of Montes Claros, State of Minas Gerais, Brazil
This Tuesday, a historical judgement is be held in Lafayette Court (Fórum Lafayette), district of Barro
Preto, Center-South region of Belo Horizonte in the State of Minas Gerais -
Defendants Ricardo Athayde Vasconcelos, 58, and his son, Diego
Rodrigues, 30, will be judged for the murder of gay actor and ballet dancer Igor
Leonardo Xavier, killed a couple of days before turning 30 years old, in
According to investigations, one of the defendants killed the
ballet dancer because he felt “horror to homosexuals”.
The judgement will be held from this Tuesday, Aug 27.
The victim was murdered 11 years ago in
Montes Claros, a city in the Brazilian State of Minas Gerais. Investigations have found
that Igor met Ricardo at a bar, who introduced himself as an art supporter and invited the young man to his house.
There, he would have seen Igor flirting
with his son. So, he got a pistol and a revolver and shot five times against
the young man. One of the bullets hit Igor’s nape.
After the crime, the suspects ran away with Ricardo’s brother’s
help. The body was found, on the following
day, on a road that connects Montes Claros to a neighbor city.
The judgement has been postponed three
times already. However, the family’s lawyer, Ernesto Queiroz, will request their ‘preventive
prison’ if it happens once again.
“They have been trying to postpone the trial
so the crime may expire”, says Queiroz.
