Gala Abraço returns to Teatro São Luiz on 1 December, the date marking World AIDS Day. The transformism show, with transvestites, drag queens, trans, LGBTQIA+ artists and supporters, celebrates the importance of inclusion and solidarity, on a night for the defense of human rights and equality, always remembering that it is in the difference that lies the wealth. A gala full of joy, fun, colours, glamour, good mood and many emotions. For more than a decade, Teatro São Luiz has been associated with this show, created in 1992 by Carlos Castro, as  the Gala Noite dos Travestis. An occasion to fight against stigmas, prejudices and support the work done by Associação Abraço, which has been supporting people with HIV and AIDS since its foundation.
