After learning of the news, Josué decided to publish on social the networks where he expressed his happiness at the decision, where he received comments in support.

“Vicky”, a speaker and fighter of human rights, conducts talks around the country regarding communication and discrimination.


“I look in the mirror and I envy myself, that I cannot be more beautiful. I mean, how can they say to me I’m a man in disguise? Some men wish they could look this good.”
