‘Queen of the Universe’ winner Grag Queen shares her ‘inspirational’ picks for ‘Sound of Pride’

Its Pride month! During the month of June, HollywoodLife running Sound of pride, a month-long feature where members of the LGBTQ+ community choose the songs that should be on your Pride 2022 playlist. Today, Grag Queen shares her picks for playlists and messages to those who are celebrating Pride this month.

Grag Queen said: “We don’t celebrate our existence.. “I think we are celebrating our resistance and everything that has passed over the past two years. As weirdos, our community knows we don’t have the same opportunities and realities as everyone else. And so I think we’re celebrating all that we [have endured]. As the queen of Brazil, where I live is where the most LGBT people are killed. Every day is a memory. So, to be living in my country, being exotic, open-minded and getting a breather from my wigs, that’s a huge reason for a big celebration of Pride. ”

Grag Queen, “You Betta” / “Party Everyday”

Grag Queen: We’re coming up from a very crazy period. We were locked in our homes, and we were separated from art and people. [We’re now] get a chance to do our shows and be around people.

In the midst of this chaos, a Brazilian girl from far away and full of… hopeless, has just experienced a very crazy and terrible moment in her country. And then she went [to America]and she won the title of Queen of the Universe.

I love celebrating Pride, but I think at this point, in addition to celebrating Pride, we also have to remember that we’re still perfect. We are fine and can dream and achieve whatever we want to achieve.

HollywoodLife: “Friend Betta” is fun and enjoyable to listen to. It really could be a song of the summer.

“I love that song, but I’m coming out with new songs, and I’m sure that will be one of them. I have some English songs like “Getting Cooked.”

How would that sound?

So I have one that I’m working on with Disney. It’s for the soundtrack for Love, Victor. It’s one of their series, and this is awesome. I’m so honored to be a part of this soundtrack and song – girl, this song is amazing! I’ve only been addicted to that song since the day we recorded the demo. And so I still listen to them every day, and I’m sure you’ll love it. The guys from Disney and in their office, they always send us emails saying they can’t stop playing it. And I am very happy for that.

Gloria Groove, “LSD”

I’ll order some Gloria Groove. That’s one of my Brazilian sisters. Because she’s doing [a] revolution in my country. She inspires me so much, and I’m sure nothing would be without her. I would love to have one of her songs there. She just dropped an album, and things are going like fire. It represents me and makes me dream and makes me want to achieve [them].

What song would you recommend to people who haven’t heard of her? Would you say something, “Listen to this” to make Gloria their new favorite artist?

I will choose the song “LSD” from her new album.

You’ll be at LA Pride, Chicago Pride and New York Pride – with lots of shows in between.

Yes, and my birthday.

When is your birthday?

It was on the 29th.

What do you want people to give you for your birthday?

So I’m taking a day off for my birthday in New York City. So if you want to bring me anything you want to bring me, I’ll take it because, bitch, I come from Brazil. Everything there is too expensive.
