It depends on what is meant as "brutalized", but just two minutes into the movie a woman in an audience is sexually assaulted by a musician while he is performing on stage and emphasis is put on the fact that she is very upset by it and runs from the room as soon as it is over. Women are treated like this throughout the film nominally to set up the fact that certain characters and supposed to be bad guys.

No, but it tip toes up to the line. There is a gay singer in the movie called "beef" who is menaced by the phantom while taking a shower. The audience is meant to wonder if he will be killed in the shower, but the phantom sticks a toilet plunger in his face instead. The plunger is already a reference to him being gay (because gay men are supposed to be obsessed with ass and poop comes out of people's asses), and there is a moment where the audience is meant to wonder if he will be sexually assaulted with the plunger.

I'd say so, Winslow's disfigurement being the main one, and then in the second half of the movie there's some stuff about someone's body being put into a supernatural state without their consent or knowledge.

No canonically lgbt people die, but one flamboyant character who is practically a bunch of gay stereotypes stacked in a trenchcoat does die. Again, the character is very stereotypical but never confirmed to be any particular sexuality or gender.
