The Sonia the Transsexual bandstand was inaugurated in Barcelona’s Ciutadella park on Sunday, 22 years after the victim was brutally murdered on that very spot by a group of seven Nazi sympathizers.
The attackers also injured another transsexual and three homeless people.
Catalonia’s gay rights group FAGC and the city’s LGBT group, who labelled the occasion as “historic”, unveiled a memorial plaque to remind people of transsexuals’ plight in the city.
Dozens of other civil and women’s rights representatives paid tribute to Sonia by leaving flowers by the commemorative plaque.
