A gay man was found dead at his apartment in Azerbaijan in February last year. In May, a trans woman was beaten and robbed by two men and, at the end of the year, a trans person was stabbed in the throat near a metro station in the capital Baku.
These are just a few of several violent attacks targeting LGBT people in the nation of Azerbaijan last year, according to ILGA-Europe, the European Region of the International Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Trans and Intersex Association.
