RIO DE JANEIRO - Barbara Aires, who was assigned male at birth, says she spent much of her childhood on the streets, because her father — a military man from the conservative state of Minas Gerais — refused to accept her gender identity.

By her late teenage years, Aires was taking hormones to transition to a woman and, because she couldn't find other employment, working as a prostitute - the fate of many transgender people who are shunned by much of Brazilian society.

Today, Aires is running to be a state representative in Rio de Janeiro, aiming to help other trans people avoid the same fate she suffered and be a voice for other marginalized people.

"When all you have are rich, white men discussing policies, things will never improve for the majority of people," said Aires, 35, a freelance television producer who is part of the left-leaning Socialism and Liberty Party.

Now that is one f’ed up country.

As the saying goes, Brazil is the country of the future, and always will be.

Brazil, one of the most violent countries in the world, that has income disparities that put the US and Europe to shame, can definitely benefit from having lots of transgender politicians permanently ensconced in office.

Suddenly the appeal of “Brazilian Wax” or “Brazilian Bikini” sounds far less attractive.
