Pride celebrates the incredible life of a black, bisexual woman who was murdered for her activism/CRIMSON TAZVINZWA/

Marielle Franco was an incredible human rights defender who dedicated her life to making Brazil a more fair and equal place. She used her voice and influence as a politician to speak up for the rights of people around her – especially LGBTI, black people and young women.

But in March 2018, Marielle was silenced forever when she was killed in a drive-by shooting. The killers have still not been brought to justice.
