Yes, my darlings. After almost 5 years of great work and self discovery during this project and of course since November 2014, when it had the world release in Sao Paulo; the documentary Gazelle The Love Issue by director/producer Cesar Terranova is now available for rent and purchase. So it can be yours forever….
I am so happy to have being invited by Cesar for this project…and soon I will upload a post about what I had to endure through and what I learned about me and others during that journey.

The opening night of the first IFFNOHO (International Film Festival of North Hollywood) in Los Angeles was just a lot of fun. I felt extremely happy that the movie Gazelle The Love Issue by Cesar Terranova was selected to be the opening film of the festival. It has been just a great run for this movie, and it was just so exciting to be able to attend the screening.

The second NY screening of Gazelle The Love Issue movie by director Cesar Terranova took place at the 12th Annual Big Apple Film Festival at Village East Cinemas. This time around, it was a more casual and smaller crowd than the first NY premiere during the NewFest gay film festival. It was wonderful to again be surrounded by lovely friends and colleagues who are part of the project, but they couldn’t attend the first screening few weeks ago. At the end, we did a lovely group photo for the BAFF photo gallery. From Flawless Sabrina and Scooter LaForge to Lauren Foster and Christina Via…it was indeed a special night.

Last week, since its world premiere in Sao Paulo at the Mix Brasil Film Festival in November 2014, the movie Gazelle The Love Issue, by Cesar Terranova / Terranova 8 Films, finally arrived in New York City at the opening night of NewFest on October 22nd, at Bow Tie cinemas. It was special to me because this was the first time that many characters in the movie had their chance to have a look at Cesar’s work since his movie has been going full force around film festival’s world circuit. I am very honored to have been invited to be part of his project and vision.
If you miss this screening, “Gazelle The Love Issue” will have two more appearances in Manhattan; first on November 6 at 10;15 at the BAFF (Big Apple Film Festival) and on December 9th at NewFilmMakers .
It was indeed a lovely time spent with friends and loved ones, and it was an special night to me because on the same night my partner Mark Anthony and I celebrated our 9th year anniversary. I believed that there was no need to pull a major look for the screening; so I decided to wear something fun, cool and meaningful to me, so my choices were;

Two hats: Silver Party Hat by Tiffany & Co and an Airplane Hat by Dumpster Chic
Jacket by Orschel Read
Shorts by Alex Mallet
Stockings by Wolford
Shoes by Yves Saint Laurent

You can visit the Facebook NewFest photo gallery to check how fun the night was.

* My mother Marlene Araujo, moi and Cesar Terranova

It was an amazing experience to be in Rio de Janeiro for the opening of the Rio Gay Festival de Cinema – at Cine Odeon – that featured Gazelle The Love Issue as the opening night film. I was in the company of director Cesar Terranova, my mother Marlene Araujo, and my friends Fernando Ferraz and Scooter LaForge and lots of other dearest friends.
I wore a dress, shoes and headpiece designed by artist Hostyano Machado, from my home state Piaui,
Cesar’s movie has been going all over the world in festivals circuit, but this time in Rio was very special because I lived there many years before moving to New York, and of course my mother was present. Artist Scooter LaForge was asked to design the official shirt for the 2015 edition of this festival:

cesar won now

Absolutely amazing; Cesar Terranova’s film “Gazelle, The Love Issue” won the “Golden Rabbit” at the Festival Mix Brasil for the Best Feature Film, competing with nine other movies in this category. Cesar spent three years following me all over the world and spent one year editing it. This is his first festival, and I am extremely happy that his movie won such an amazing award at the biggest gay festival of Latin America.

The opening party for the 22nd Festival Mix Brasil took place this Thursday in Sao Paulo; it was so much fun being surrounded by a lot of interesting people who are also part of this festival – the biggest in Latin America. I attended the event in the company of my partner Mark Anthony – who flew from NY with me – and the director Cesar Terranova, who together with producer Gerard Joly is behind the documentary “Gazelle,The Love Issue“.
