It is already a tradition at Teatro São Luiz: on the night of December 1st, World AIDS Day, the Gala Abraço is held, with great pomp and glitter. A transvestism show, with transvestites, drag queens, transsexuals, LGBTi artists and supporters, in its 28th edition, to remind us of the importance of inclusion and solidarity. . It is a night devoted to human rights protection and equality, to underline that diversity is a treasure. And also a lush night full of joy, fun, colours, glamour, good mood and many emotions.
It’s been more than a decade since Teatro São Luiz joined this initiative, created by Carlos Castro in 1992 named Gala Noite dos Travestis. An occasion to fight against stigmas, prejudice and support the work of Associação Abraço who has been providing, from its foundation, help to people with HIV/AIDS.
