Queen of Lapa

October 3, 2019 @ 12:30 pm - 2:05 pm

Free – £8
A young white person with long blond hair and long eyelashes is naked from chest up. Their hand covers their chest, touching their ear thoughtfully. They have a large tattoo across their shoulder. Behind is a pink wall.

Larger-than-life actress, cabaret performer, activist, and sex worker, Luana Muniz – arguably one of Brazil’s most recognisable trans personalities – shapes a new reality for a generation of trans sex workers in her hostel by providing a safe working environment in the dangerous neighbourhood of Lapa in Rio de Janeiro. Queen of Lapa explores day-to-day lives, quests for love, and housemate rivalries in a turbulent political climate under matriarch Muniz’s watchful and guiding eye.

Screening with short Fernanda’s Spring (20m), in which a trans woman negotiates discrimination in trying to find work. Part of our strand Latinx Legends.

Tickets are priced on a sliding scale £0-£8 depending on what you can afford. To book, please use the button below or call CCA box office on +44 (0)141 352 4900.
