Every year, Pri Bertucci’s [SSEX BBOX] event brings together São Paulo’s LGBTQ+ community with social justice talks, workshops, and high-octane events. This year, there was an extra special guest: Twiggy Pucci Garçon. The advocate, legendary Runway performer and member of the ballroom community travelled from New York to take part in the [SSEX BBOX] International Conference, taking part in a talk and hosting a Runway workshop.
“Twiggy’s presence this year was essential,” says Bertucci. I haven’t seen anything in the LGBT movement that can bring the intersectionality issue through in such a clear way as Voguing and the Ballroom scene because you’re talking about Black, marginalised and LGBT groups.”
