Mexico holds funeral for non-binary magistrate

Aguascalientes (Mexico) (AFP) – A non-binary Mexican magistrate whose death sparked protests and anger among the LGBTQ community appears to have been the victim of a murder-suicide committed by their partner, investigators said Tuesday. The body of Jesus Ociel Baena — the first Mexican citizen to be granted a non-binary passport — was found with that of another person at Baena’s home in Aguascalientes state on Monday, the prosecutor’s office said. Despite prosecutors ruling out the presence of a third person at the scene, protesters gathered in Mexico City insisting Baena was the victim of a hate crime.
