Fado Bicha

Introducing an on-line journal, 'Divergente'. Although it covers Portugal as a whole we personally feel it is thought provoking and would be of interest to the followers of these pages.

This journal is guided by the criteria of independence, rigour, pluralism, transparency and editorial creativity. The editorial team reject all types of discrimination, namely of race, colour, sex, language, religion, political opinion, but also any other not mentioned here.

There is one article in particular that might be of interest that explores the theme of Fado Bicha (queer) which has caused a lot of controversy with Fado purists, not just because of the drag element but because the instruments used are not traditional and the themes are provacative. Even members of the LGBT community have been quite negative about aspects of Fado Bicha. We shall leave you to make up up your own minds.
