Erika Hilton, Sao Paulo's first Black trans city councillor

"Brazil is a racist, LGBT-phobic country, and I've got it all in my body, in my political platform," says Erika Hilton, recently elected city councillor in Sao Paulo. The 27-year-old Black trans woman was in the 'top 10' most-voted councillors across the whole country in the 15 November municipal elections, and was the most-voted woman.
