It was indeed a great celebration inside the super packed TV Bar club in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro, for the release of the short movie Lorna Washington: Sobrevivendo a Supostas Perdas. Lorna Washington is an iconic and legendary gay activist / female impersonator who is a very well known personality in the marvelous city of Rio. On a personal level, Lorna is a friend and my drag mother; she has given me the name “Gazelle”, and she has been a very intense force of inspiration for me.
The movie, by “carioca” directors Leonardo Menezes and Rian Córdova, will soon start the circuit of festivals in Brazil and abroad, and it beautifully shows the work and real life of this extraordinary artist.
