While participating in the Big Brother Extra, a reality show analysis ride, he shot LGBTQIA + architect and activist Bruno Almeida, one of the competitors in the episode, which kicked off on Sunday (12).

Some time ago, the brother made headlines in the Portuguese press when he spoke in the Assembly of the Republic against discrimination against homosexuals who want to donate blood. The psychologist said that Bruno was “an irresponsible child, an idle queer who considers himself a hero.”

Bruno’s belligerence helped lift the rule that sexual orientation was used as an exception for donating blood in Portugal in March. In practice, this did not allow gays. Without evidence, Quintino Aires hinted that gay blood could endanger the population.

“There is something serious: the fact that now someone who has sex with a large number of people can donate blood in three months, whereas before, you had to wait six. I would prefer to wait 1 year. The blood service is very careful, but (now) the risk of us needing a transfusion will increase, ”he said.

The Big Brother commentator also spoke badly about the Lisbon gay pride parade. “(Homosexuals) continue to demonstrate their licentiousness with a march of shame. During the march, the vast majority walk half naked, licking each other. Then the number of infections increases, and (medical) institutions are preparing for this. “

As reported in a blog post on Monday (13), Portugal’s Big Brother is represented by two gay communicators, Manuel Luis Gusha and Claudio Ramos. There are three LGBT members in the house: homosexuals Bruno and António and a trans man to Lawrence. It is the most diverse reality TV release in Portugal in 21 years.

Hours after Quintino Aires started the argument, Bruno, not knowing what happened outside the house, told his cellmates what he once lived while trying to donate blood. “The girl turned to me and said,“ Are you gay? Oh yes, you can donate blood, but you need to spend 1 year in abstinence. ” And me: “What? But have I hurt anyone? “- he said.

“Homosexuals are the people who most of all test themselves for STDs (Sexually Transmitted Diseases). A heterosexual does not even remember how he went to the test, we (gays) constantly think about it. “

In Brazil, the restriction on the donation of blood by homosexuals was lifted in May 2020 following a Supreme Court decision. Most judicial ministers found the rule introduced by Anvisa and the Ministry of Health unconstitutional and discriminatory.

Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.



Maestro de Braga is the first Portuguese in the National Symphony Orchestra of Cuba.

Maestro Filipe Cunha, Artistic Director of the Philharmonic Orchestra of Braga, has been invited to conduct the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra, as announced today.

According to a statement sent by O MINHO, “he will be the first Portuguese conductor to conduct this orchestra in its entire history.”

In addition to this orchestra, the maestro will also work with the Lyceo Mozarteum de la Habana Symphony Orchestra.

The concerts will take place on 4 and 12 March 2023 at the National Theater of Cuba in Havana.

In the words of the maestro, quoted in the statement, “these will be very beautiful concerts with difficult but very complex pieces” and therefore he feels “very motivated”.

From the very beginning, Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 will be performed by an Italian pianist (Luigi Borzillo), whom the maestro wants to bring to Portugal later this year. In the same concert, Mendelshon’s First Symphony will be performed.

Then, at the second concert, in the company of the Mexican clarinetist Angel Zedillo, he will perform the Louis Sfora Concerto No. 2. In this concert, the maestro also conducts Tchaikovsky’s Fifth Symphony.

“This is an international recognition of my work. An invitation that I accept with humility and great responsibility. I was surprised to learn that I would be the first Portuguese member of the Cuban National Symphony Orchestra. This is a very great honor,” the maestro said in a statement.

“I take with me the name of the city of Braga and Portugal with all the responsibility that goes with it, and I hope to do a good job there, leaving a good image and putting on great concerts. These will be very special concerts because, in addition to performing pieces that I love, especially Rachmaninov and Tchaikovsky, I will be directing two wonderful soloists who are also my friends. It will be very beautiful,” concludes Filipe Cunha.
