Supplementary notes

* According to the source, twelve victims were identified as heterosexual, justifying their inclusion in this statistic by the fact that they were killed due to their involvement with the LGBT universe, either because they tried to defend a gay or lesbian person when their life was threatened, because they frequented predominantly gay spaces or they were involved with a trans person.
