Before Getting COVID, Brazilian President Said Masks 'Are for Fairies'

Folha de São Paulo columnist Monica Bergamo reports. Her story is in Portuguese, and the full version is available only to subscribers, but The Guardian reports that Bolsonaro taunted aides who were wearing masks by saying the protective gear was “‘coisa de viado’ (a homophobic slur that roughly translates as ‘for fairies’).” Some Twitter users have translated it as “for fags” or “a faggot thing.”The Brazilian president, who has been praised by Trump and is known as the “Trump of the Tropics,” has made many anti-LGBTQ+ statements over the course of his career, such as saying he’d rather have a dead son than a gay one and that gay people try to brainwash children in order to groom them as future sexual partners.
