Arrive in evening wear, see a fantastic show, have a lot of fun and support a great cause. It’s time once again for Gala Abraço, a spectacular celebration of song, dance and entertainment, reminding and uniting all of us in the continuing fight against HIV and AIDS. This 22nd edition of the live stage production is 1 December (World AIDS Day) at the São Luiz Teatro Municipal in Lisbon.



The theme for this year’s show is “transformismo” (in English “transformation”, or more colloquially know as “drag”). Artistic Director is none other than Deborah Kristall (actor Fernando Santos), Star Diva from Finalmente Club in Lisbon. Portuguese celebrities Joaquim Monchique and Maria Rueff will be presenters for the show. Entertainers on the program for this special night include:

Simone de Oliveira ■ Samantha Rox ■ FF ■ Jenny Larrue ■ Irmãos Feist ■ Nyma Charlles
Kelly Kiss ■ Mariana Monteiro ■ Suelly Cadillac ■ Rui Maria Pêgo ■ Linda Xenon

Proceeds from the Gala go to Associação Abraço, a non-profit that provides support services for those affected with HIV and AIDS. The organization also provides support, training and education of health workers and technicians involved with HIV, as well as infection prevention, directed at the general population and especially young people, drug users, sex workers, women, gays, and transgender inmates. There are three Abraço centers: Lisbon, Porto and Funchal.
