Exposure as a member of the LGBTQIA+ community affects Pabllo Vittar’s health. The Brazilian drag queen told on the program Conversa com Bial (Globo) that, despite undergoing intensive therapy for over a year, she is still shaken by the hateful comments she receives. The recording is scheduled to air on the night of this Friday (30).

“What makes me sad the most is that comments like this often come from people I know, from longtime fans. I got away from Twitter and social media in general because of this. I had a year and two months of intensive therapy and I’m still doing,” he said.

The pop singer also said that, despite performing the feminine on stage, she does not like to claim to be a woman, stressing that she is a gay boy from the Northeast: “I don’t like to say that I am a woman, not even on stage. I am a person who performs the feminine in its greatest abundance. I am a gay boy who does drag, who lives his art. I am very happy doing this.”

Pabllo’s success has already reached the international stage, but she says that prejudiced people do not accept the advancement of her career. “I’ve always suffered from this kind of hate, since the beginning of my career. Even doing big things like Coachella and Lollapalooza, it still affects us.”
