MEXICO CITY (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – A pair of drag queens will grace the October cover of Vogue in Brazil, the magazine said on Monday, marking a landmark for the iconic fashion publication in a nation where openly gay and trans people face violence and discrimination. Grammy-nominated singer Pabllo Vittar and rapper Gloria Groove will each appear on separate covers of Vogue Brasil’s issue entitled “Eleganza Extravaganza,” which hits newsstands on Oct. 9. Vogue Brasil has a print readership of 365,000 and is part of Conde Nast’s global Vogue brand, which has more than two dozen international editions and a worldwide print reach of 24.9 million readers. “I was … researching Vogue’s most iconic covers and absorbing the fact that now it’s my turn,” Groove, known for the 2017 hit “Bumbum de Ouro,” told Vogue. “I’m living a dream, and I am thrilled with the invitation because being here positions drag queens as fashion icons.”
