The Red Zone: A place where butch lesbians live in fear – BBC News

Three mysterious deaths and dozens of violent attacks on butch lesbians, or camionas, have put lesbians in Chile’s Fifth region on red alert.
Nicole Saavedra Bahamondes’ family knew she was not a morning person.
Especially at weekends, the 23-year-old did not leave her bedroom early – and she knew her mother wouldn’t disturb her in her cosy bed, still laden with the cuddly toys from her childhood.
At about 11:00 on a Saturday, Nicole would usually emerge and walk slowly to the kitchen in search of coffee.
She would blearily exchange words with her mother, Olga Bahamondes, giving monosyllabic answers to any questions about the night before.
