Despite being from Rio I’d never been to the favelas until I met Wesley and his friends, to talk about their movement, Queerlombola. My name is Asafe, and I’m a filmmaker and photographer born in Rio De Janeiro. Brazil is a country enjoyed for its beauty and diversity But growing up I was surrounded by people who were suffocating under the burden of a normal life and I knew I’d rather be wrong than safe.
