About the Film
“Bixa Travesty” (Tranny Fag) is a feature-length documentary picturing a Brazilian transsexual singer called Linn da Quebrada. Coming from a very poor region of São Paulo, she faces many prejudices, also for being black. Her funk music sounds like a “gun” against machismo. With a really strong and daring presence on stage, she constantly seeks to discuss and fight paradigms and stereotypes.
