Argentina’s president-elect has spoken about his son being a drag queen.
Estanislao Fernàndez, who goes by the drag name DYHZY, is a rising star in his country’s queer scene, serving some sickening cosplay looks and boasting over 185,000 followers on Instagram.
He’s also the son of Alberto Fernàndez, Argentina’s new centre-left president-elect who ousted right-wing leader Mauricio Macri in elections last month, which many in the LGBTQ community have celebrated.
Trolls have targeted Alberto and his son, including Eduardo Bolsonaro, son of anti-LGBTQ Brazilian President Jair Bolsonaro, who recently retweeted a photo of himself holding a gun alongside a photo of DYHZY in drag with the caption, “This is not a meme”.
But Alberto isn’t letting the hate get to him, and has said that he is “proud” of his son for being successful in his art and for being an activist.
“I have pride in my son, how can I not be proud? My son is a rights activist in that community. I would worry if my son was a criminal, but he is a great man,” he said.
“In that world, which I don’t know much about, [he] seems to be respected and very recognised. I feel proud for my son.”
