Two gay Northeastern Brazilians are defying the country’s fashion scene’s status quo by being themselves, pushing inclusivity to become ‘the new normal’, and creating stories with a symbolic background.

, a visual creative couple that knows no boundaries when it comes to beauty, fashion, but also politics. We speak with them to get an insight into Brazil’s current fashion industry, how racism still plays a major role in every aspect of society and creativity, and how are they fighting the current ultra-conservative government.
