On January 16th, the biggest reality show in the country, Big Brother Brasil, will start. The program, which is in its 23rd edition, has been successful since its creation, however, in recent years, the entertainment show has had such a high audience that it has set a record. Much of this is due to the new format of the program, which is putting famous people (Camarote) and anonymous people (Pipoca) in the same house, in the dispute for the dreamed final prize.
Another point that has been drawing the attention of the public is the diversity of people inside the house. Suellen Carey, transvestite and digital influencer, is one of those people who knows everything about the program and doesn’t leave the screen looking for updated information and gossip.
For her, representation in the program is very important: “Seeing people of different genders there is very relevant for our community. We feel represented, for sure.” “When Linn da Quebrada entered the house, I got goosebumps! She was representing a whole group of people there,” said the influencer.
On social networks, Suellen Carey appealed to the television director, Boninho, so that representation is not focused only on Linn, but that it continues, and that more members of the LGBTQIAP+ community can enter the program and represent those who do not usually have so much visibility.
“Linn’s entry was a historic milestone for us, it showed that transvestites can go a long way, even with so much prejudice in the world. So let’s not let this go unnoticed, let’s put more people in the community in the spotlight”, said Suellen Carey.
