For whatever reason I don’t know, you behaved in a way that you convinced yourself you weren’t.” a boy. ‘No, I was born a boy, but I’m not a boy, I want to be a girl’. Then you went to the doctor, turned to science, which made you stop being a boy and become a girl. And the people who did it today are called transsexuals“, asked Silvio.

The artist went public with his condemnation of his aunt’s statements after a series of homophobic speeches delivered live.

It went down in history. We know that Brazil and the world are divided. There will be those who say he is wrong, from the straight to the trans world, they will find some error in speech and then the division will emerge. But now, this time, it doesn’t have to be canceled. He has to be exalted once more. Really, Silvio Santos is the man. For our community, it was amazing. He had a thousand things to play with me, but he decided to talk and it came out very natural. It was nothing engineered, it came from him. Surely, he must have studied after everything that happened with his daughter, with his grandson,” Ana told Metrópoles.


On social media, the lightness with which Silvio dealt with the topic was applauded, not only for the history of problematic comments, but also for for approaching the subject in a natural way in a program that has great acceptance among the most varied layers of society.
