At 25 years old, Pabllo Vittar (real name: Phabullo Rodrigues da Silva) has become a household name in her home country of Brazil. The fierce, unapologetic, and empowering singer and drag superstar has gained international success from her collaborations with artists such as Diplo, Lali, Charli XCX, and Thalia, among others.
For Vittar, being a Latina artist in the LGBTQ community is very important.
“I am a voice for all the LGBTQ community not only in my country Brazil, where we face difficult times but for all of Latin America and the world,” she tells Billboard. “I’ve been to so many countries and I realized that it’s not only in Brazil that we need this voice, but everywhere, and I’m very happy to be one of these voices.”
