Red Bull Music's Latest Season Of 'Inspire The Night' Tackles Brazil's LGBTQ Community
The doc aims to show a side of Brazil not typically shown in popular culture.
The third season of Red Bull Music's original series Inspire The Night showcases various nightlife scene, its curators and the impact their creative efforts have on their respective communities.
The premiere episode kicks off in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and follows the story of the nightlife collective, Batekoo. In a country dominated by traditionalist ideals, members of the Batekoo face various struggles through race, politics and gender, as many collective members are part of the LGTBQ community.
"With candid interviews from Artur, Kiara, currently transitioning to a woman, well-known Brazilian artists including Karol Conka, and even local government officials, Inspire The Night: Batekoo is an inspirational short documentary exposing a side of Brazil not typically shown in popular culture," per a statement.
The docu-series aims to explore the various groups involved in the Brazilian nightlife scene in an effort to highlight the need for more progress and inclusivity in these spaces. However, Batekoo continues to expand, and hosts events not just in Sao Paulo, but also in Rio de Janeiro and at Carnival called Carnakoo.
"After focusing on cities and events for the first two seasons, respectively, Inspire The Night’s third season exposes the personal stories of the founders and staff of these inspirational parties," a statement from Red Bull Music reads. Upcoming episodes will highlight stories from individuals in New York, Los Angeles, Miami and Shanghai.
