We are delighted to announce Camila Prins will be leading the school as our Estandarte!!
Camila is Brazil's first Rainha Trans and we are thrilled she will be parading with us at Brighton Gay Pride 2018.
Originally from São Paulo, she started her samba journey at a very early age, making costumes with her mother.
She has paraded with most samba schools in Sao Paulo as destaque including Vai Vai, Nene de Vila Matilde and Tom Maior. She was also Scala Gay rainha in the Rio carnival.
It was in 2000 her 'love story' begun with Camisa Verde e Branco and in 2018 she was invited to be their rainha de bateria, the first trans rainha in Brazil's carnival history.
Camila said 'I dedicate this title to the LGBT community'
Camila who lives in Switzerland, still very involved with the samba community in Europe. She is Unidos de Lausanne Madrinha da Bateria and continues to perform across Europe. You can find more about her transformation story on this link here.
