Spanish police have arrested three suspects connected to the beating death of a young gay man whose killing set off massive protests in Madrid, Barcelona and other cities across Spain.

Twenty-four-year-old nursing assistant Samuel Luiz died after he was beaten near a nightclub early Saturday in a town in northern Spain. One of his attackers was heard shouting a homophobic slur.

The killing brought tens of thousands of demonstrators into the streets, less than a week after Spain’s annual Pride celebrations.

Redan Evado: “The country still does not really accept that there are many different ways to love. It should not be possible that just because a person decides to live his life loving a person of the same gender, or loving whomever, he ends up losing his life.”
