Queer Spaces in São Paulo
Queer Spaces in São PauloPaulo Saul
We'd like to thank São Paulo native, Paula Saul from the House of Blyndex for putting this list together.
House of Blyndex acts through the ballroom community and culture to create music, fashion, scenography, styling, dance, acting, education. Breaking the tradition of corporate hierarchies, the house has a horizontal system of dynamic control, where each of the fifteen members has equal autonomy over decisions.
