Orange letters on a green background say Tiely

The Black in the Americas Series presents Tiely Santos, who has been a part of Brazilian hip hop culture for more than 30 years. He will discuss his artwork, activism and new book, TRANSPOETHICALBODY.

Tiely Santos began his career as an actor, dancer, photographer, and as a rapper with the defunct group Tribo Cerebral and later with Fator Ético, one of the groups belonging to Aliança Negra Posse. Considered the first Trans Man of Brazilian rap, Tiely has stayed in São Paulo, performing in films, theater, and television. He also writes poetry, blogs, and novels. In his projects, Tiely always seeks LGBTQIAP+ artists, thus ensuring space within hip hop culture for them. He hopes that hip hop culture can be a springboard to change in other segments of society.

Admission is free.
