The world needs to know what is happening in Brazil ! ! !

It is a pleasure to write for you all. My name is Helena, I'm 19 years old and I live in S達o Paulo, Brazil.

Through the facebook, I follow your struggle for homossexual's people recognition. I know how hard it is, and I do appreciate your work. Congratulations for it.

Today, I am here for a really sad worrying thing, and I want ask for your help:
Some weeks ago, a man called Marco Feliciano, who is an evangelical priest and also deputy, was selected to be the President of Human Rights Comission at Chamber of Deputies.

That wouldn't be a problem, if the man havent said how homophobic and racist he is. He declared via twitter and videos on youtube that he is against gay people, and also said that "Africa is cursed by God. This is the reason we have so many troubles there, as AIDS", and etc.

This is a disgrace to the Brazilian people, and we are all very embarrassed about it.
I'm here to ask your help: we are moving a campaign to say WHY MARCO FELICIANO DO NOT REPRESENT ME. This consists on creating a simple plaque saying (I am black / white / gay / not gay / student / teacher / mother / feminist / catholic / atheist / whatever you want! / and Marco Feliciano do not represent me!)

We are getting so much plaques, from ALL OVER THE WORLD, but we need more! I talked with an international celebrity and famous drag queen called Jujubee, who is american, that will help us on this campaign. Please, give us some support!

I believe this is not a local fight, but an universal fight, because we are fighting for humanity.

Thank you for your support. It is very important for Brazilian people and all communities in the world.

Best Regards,

Helena Vitorino
