Keynote Speaker

Picture of Renata Carvalho

Renata Carvalho is a travesti actress from Brazil. Arguably her most famous work is her performance as a transgender Jesus Christ in the touring production of the play The Gospel According to Jesus, Queen of Heaven in Brazil in 2016. Following the protests the play faced from different conservative forces in the country, Renata has emerged as a symbol not only of trans and queer identity, but of resistance by disempowered minorities to their oppression.
