Portrait Aloma Divina

Drag queen Sao Paulo

Divina Aloma started using female hormones when she was 14 years old. Originally from Bahia, she lived in Rio de Janeiro then. After she came to São Paulo she was working as a showgirl, and got invited to travel as a girl through Europe. Working with other girls, she hid that she was a man. After 20 years she came back to Brazil, where she continues to do shows until today.
