Ladies & Ladies: Travesti Biológica (5/9)


The fifth video from the album Travesti Biológica celebrates the cultural turn when we claim terms that once were used to oppress.

“Names” from the album Travesti Biológica by Mavi Veloso.

NAMES is the fifth video in the series TRAVESTI BIOLÓGICA. The song celebrates the cultural turn when we claim terms that once were used to oppress. We use these same “names” as a sassy and spiritual assertion of pride and power.
