Pabllo Vittar is a wonderful anomaly. Her home country, Brazil, has the highest recorded murder rate of LGBTQ people in the world, and recently elected an openly homophobic president who once said he’d rather his son die in a car accident than come home with a boyfriend. Yet here we have a proud gay drag queen representing Brazil’s vibrant queer community on a global scale, boasting the largest Instagram following of any drag queen in the world (8.3 million) and doing stratospheric numbers on YouTube (her most successful single K.O. is currently sitting pretty at 333 million views). She became the first drag queen to be nominated for a Grammy with her Major Lazer collaboration Sua Cara, and her single Todo Dia, which features the glorious lyrics, “I don’t wait for Carnival to be a bitch, I am one every day”, became the unofficial anthem of Brazil’s 2017 Carnival celebrations. The importance of this commercial success for an undoubtedly queer individual isn’t lost on Pabllo. “I know that I’m a piece of the whole LGBTQ community, and I know the responsibilities that come with that,” she says. “That’s why I’m here. It’s amazing to bring the art of drag and music together to the mainstream market in Brazil. People must know that we are talented and deserve our spotlight.”
