Amílcar Cárcamo

Amílcar Cárcamo is a journalist from Honduras who has been published on national and international news websites including Washington Blade and Los Angeles Blade. He works with Reportar Sin Miedo, a digital media outlet that covers news about migration, women's sexual and reproductive rights, and LGBTQ+ issues. He is also a member of the LGBTQI+ community, an activist, and a human rights defender in his home country.

"Discrimination, Prejudice, and Exclusion" is his most cherished work. This story narrates three different cruel realities of trans women that fight against the odds of living as a trans individual in Honduras. Sadly, one of the activists, Thalía Rodríguez, was murdered two months after the article was published. With the help of this publication, her story was told correctly and went viral.

In 2021, Amílcar participated in the investigation of a Facebook fake engagement scheme in Honduras. Sophie Zhang, a data scientist and whistleblower who formerly worked with Facebook, revealed to Amilcar and his peers from Reportar Sin Miedo the immense amount of fraudulent engagement on the Facebook page of Honduras’ former president Juan Orlando Hernández.

Amílcar was also a fellow of the International Center for Journalists (ICFJ) in 2021, and the Washington & International Women’s Media Foundation (IWMF) in 2022.

Amílcar's goal is to expose stories about injustices and violations of human rights in Honduras, as well as across the globe. He is interested not only in sharing news regarding to these issues, but to make an impact that contributes to a cultural change in Honduras, and eventually, internationally.
