Pioneer of the Oddity Movement (Movement to Advance LGBTQIA+ Artists to the Rural Landscape), The artist talks about his career and his relationship with his father, Solimos, who works with the Rio Negro.

In an interview with Patrícia Kogut’s column, Gabeu and his friend Gali Galo (actors of queernejo – a sub-genre of the musical style that represents diversity) celebrated the good stage, as the duo participated in the Globoplay series.

The singer talks about the operation To tell his family he was gay at the age of 16. “At the time, due to getting older, this happened in a restrictive way. Today, at 24, I have more confidence to deal with it without taboo and without fear. We talk more openly about these things.
