All of this exists, all of this is queer, all of this is fado

Photo Essay
Fado Bicha [Queer Fado] is sung by a thick bearded transvestite and brings lesbians, gays, bisexuals, trans and intersex themes into the core of the Portuguese traditional music. It’s queer because it’s not traditional, because it’s not afraid of showing itself.

About

EDITORIAL POSITION STATEMENT

1. DIVERGENTE is conceived of as a digital media translator of the contemporary world, dedicated to revitalising real research. We favour multimedia and “mixed media” narrative styles with a focus on depth and context, produced by a multidisciplinary team.

2. DIVERGENTE is predominantly journalistic by nature, using skills such as research, gathering, selection and handling of facts and opinions. We create spaces for stories and explore silences.

3. DIVERGENTE is guided by the criteria of independence, rigour, pluralism, transparency and editorial creativity. We reject all types of discrimination, namely of race, colour, sex, language, religion, political opinion, but also any other not mentioned here.

4. DIVERGENTE should not remain neutral when human dignity or fundamental values for life in society are at stake.

5. DIVERGENTE is founded on original work and the vision of a permanent editorial team with guest authors, aiming to create a collective memory. We are not interested in the sprint, but in the long-distance.
