Roberta MirandaThe 65yearold defines himself as “trisexual“. Although sexuality is not officially classified like the others, it was the way the singer expressed that she is a fan of free love and even dated a transvestite named Luz Del Fuego.

“I was very young, I was about 16 and she was about 20, 21. It lasted about four months, but we really fell in love. It was the first contact I had with someone with a sexuality between male and female. I even made up a joke where I said, ‘If you eat everything, you don’t have to go hungry’ (laughs),” he said Roberta Mirandain an interview with Metropoles columnist Léo Dias.

With a career spanning 36 years, the singer has argued that the only reason she hasn’t disclosed this romance so far is that she’s usually very private with her private life, out of respect for herself and her family, who used to be much more conservative was the past.

Though I kept it under wraps Roberta Miranda reiterates that the relationship with Luz Del Fuego was one of the most important in her life. “It was my first and only passion. I lost touch, but many years later I saw her when she was no longer working as a transformist and she took a swing”.

According to the singer, after meeting Luz Del Fuego, the only reason that prevented her from continuing their love was her family. The pressure in the house was something strong for the artist at that moment. “My mother couldn’t know. She didn’t understand, she asked, ‘Why is this woman after you?'”.

Although he is currently open about his sexuality, Roberta Miranda reiterates that his novels are a subject he does not like to disclose. Not afraid of criticism, she feels isolated in the age of the internet.

“No one can judge anyone. And when they try to do it to me, I say, ‘It’s my life, the body is mine, I’m not asking to borrow yours.

“It’s not that I’m living my sexuality more fully now, I’ve always lived it,” he said. “But I’ve always been reserved, coming from a stricter family, and I’ve respected that very much. And as my analyst says, some fantasies have to stay fantasies.”
