The life expectancy of transgender people in
Brazil is age 35 due to violence and discrimination. This fact is highlighted
in the new film Thirty-Five developed
by Y&R Brazil (part of VMLY&R Group) for Athosgls, an LGBTQI+ news
portal. The short film, produced by FAUNA studio, features real trans couple Guto
and Onika. This statistic is underscored by the film’s soundtrack, a cover of
Alphaville’s hit song ‘Forever Young’ by Brazilian vocalist Liniker. This year
marks the 35th anniversary of the song’s release.
