Meet your Rio de Janeiro hosts

Meet Lucas


Meet Luiz

Hello, hello, hello!!! We're Lucas and Luiz, Brazil’s most iconic gay couple, colourful designers and fabulous city hosts you’ll ever meet (Jk but heeey, in our minds it's true!). We’re fresh in this design world and it’s been fantastic representing TDK in Rio de Janeiro! When we're not talking about the drag queens scene we're running our own studio called "Estúdio VRA!" (@estudiovra.co). Design and queer culture are truly our main obsession, and that's why we've named our studio as "VRA!" - which is the onomatopoeia for the sound of a drag queen hand fan opening; same as “thworp” in English. This action represents an ethos in queer culture and we put the same ethos into our work ... basically saying f*** off to minimalism.. That's sickeeening, no? Oh, and don’t forget to check our Pop and LGBTQIA+ culture products that we love to offer. So you can wear your pride hoooney! Anyways, join us as we uncover the life and secrets of Rio’s design world! We will give our best to make sure it’s an exciting and insightful journey! ; )
