Daniel Mauricio Zamudio Vera (3 August 1987 – 27 March 2012) was a Chilean man who became a symbol against homophobic violence in Chile following his 2012 murder.
On 2 March 2012, Zamudio, a Chilean gay man, was beaten and tortured for several hours in the San Borja Park in downtown Santiago.
The four attackers, allegedly linked to a neo-Nazi gang, attacked him after learning he was gay.His death and all the media attention contributed to accelerating legislation against discrimination, as well as opening new doors of acceptance and tolerance of differences in the conservative country.
