Hello,
I “m a lesbian and singer. Me and my wife have suffered together a lot of prejudice in Brazil, and have fought together for our rights very well. So we decided to make a video clip with lesbian issues, ‘cause we believe that the LGBT issue must be released and it’s a chance to be closer to a reality in which the world may consider being gay as natural as being straight. And we think entertainment music videos is a good way to show it to a lot of people.
