Attention, political show! Linn Da Quebrada, literally “the beauty of the lowlands”, is one of the most emblematic figures of the transgender movement in Brazil. Activist and muse of the LGBT struggle, she has been using the controversial codes of the popular Baile Funk culture since 2016 and declaring herself a terrorist of the genre. Well-equipped against the common machismo, she demands the feminisation of society with ingenious lyrics. She’s definitely not a pop queen and ready to break through all sorts of norms, as well as language barriers.
