Grag Queen, the host of Brazil’s Drag Race spin-off, has spoken about being forced to undergo conversion therapy. The drag queen shot to fame as the winner of the first season of the short-lived singing competition, Queen of the Universe, and later hosted the inaugural season of Drag Race Brazil. Speaking in support of short film The Cure, which was inspired by the investigative work of journalist Marcos Sergio Silva and author Jean Ícaro’s book Gay Cure: There Is No Cure for What is Not a Disease, Grag Queen has opened up about her own experiences. Conversion therapy refers to attempts to forcibly change the sexuality or gender identity of an individual, which is impossible. The methods used are often psychologically and physically harmful.
