Recommendation: Ney Matogrosso

Nate Wilde recommends…

Ney Matogrosso is a gay Brazilian singer who first became popular in the ’70s. At the time, being gay was considered taboo in Brazil, so he never officially came out. Nevertheless, he didn’t let the conservative values of the country hold him back. He had a stage personality more flamboyant than Elton John and Liberace combined, and it came complete with outlandish costumes and hip shaking only a Brazilian can pull off.

Most impressive of all is that at 79, he is still just as fabulous today as he was all those years ago. As a Brazilian, I could not be prouder to have a musician such as him representing my country.

    Actually Ney has been in relationships with man and woman, he considers itself bissexual. I love him, thanks for sharing!

    Ney is 70, not 79, born August 1, 1941. Probably just a typo.
