In Casa Nem a party is being prepared, so the house is bustling. Everybody is getting dressed or helping somebody else. But this is not your average party. Casa Nem is a home for LGBT in Rio, mainly trans people live there. So, bras are stuffed, and some extra make-up is applied. Together they can party safely. The need for such a home in Brazil is evident. Although data is patchy according to the National Association of Travesties and Transsexuals Brazil last year 163 trans people were murdered across the country.
