“I’m not a woman, I’m a transvestite,” he said. “Let’s be honest, there’s no such thing as ‘a woman.’”
Quebrada identifies as a gay man and a transvestite.
The term transvestite is commonly used term in Brazil to describe men who dress like women.

He also participated in a photo shoot using a prosthetic pregnant belly, saying he dreamed of getting pregnant and becoming a mother one day, according to an Instagram post. He has almost 3 million followers on the platform.
Giovanna Heliodoro was the other male winner, taking home Glamour‘s “Woman Influencer with a Cause” award. Heliodoro identifies as a “feminist black trans woman,” Reduxx noted, and is known for being a trans rights advocate in Brazil.
Quebrada and Heliodoro aren’t the first men to be honored as the best women. In 2015, Glamour Magazine named Caitlyn Jenner their Woman of the Year for working as a “trans champion.” In March of this year, USA TODAY announced that one of their “Women of the Year” was the Assistant Secretary of Health and Human Services, Rachel Levine, who is also a man.
In July, the University of Pennsylvania nominated transgender-identifying swimmer Lia Thomas for the 2022 NCAA Woman of the Year award. Influencer Dylan Mulvaney was invited to the White House to speak with President Joe Biden.
