As protests rock Colombia this week over tax reforms, LGBTQ people have led sizeable contingents through the streets nationwide. Video posted to multiple social media sites showed queer activists vogueing their way to justice as part of a national strike yesterday that shut the country down. Trans women dancing in a plaza were met by police with riot shields in one video. Protests broke out nationwide and both videos were reportedly recorded in Bogotá. By mid-afternoon, the protests in Bogotá had turned violent as protestors set fire to a police motorcycle and the militarized police force shot tear gas into the crowd. Violence was also reported in other cities nationwide as residents took to the streets.
