Moises Spilere: Brazil’s first gay football club president


Moises Spilere remembers the day of his election very well. “It was rather spontaneous and came about that way,” the 35-year-old told DW. In the past, elections at Caravaggio Futebol Clube were usually held where members turned to a group that was willing to take over the leadership and run the club. “I was ready this time, together with others, to take on that responsibility,” Spilere said. By the end of the day, he was elected unanimously and for the last few weeks, Moises Spilere has been the chairman of Caravaggio Futebol Clube. As a second-division club from Nova Venza, a city of 14,000 inhabitants in the state championship of the southern Brazilian state of Santa Catarina, the personnel affair of this relatively small team attracted an unusual amount of media attention throughout Brazil.
