Felipa de Souza (1556, Portugal – 1600, Brazil) was a woman who had romantic relationships with other women during the Brazilian colonial era. She was accused of sodomy and because of that she fell victim of the Catholic Inquisition.

Her name was adopted by the International Gay and Lesbian Human Rights Commission to name its annual human rights prize.
