Drag performers are a multi-talented bunch. They aren’t just makeup experts or skilled tailors — they often serve as educators, bringing LGBTQ issues to light or simply reading stories at the library.

Emerson Munduruku is one of these drag queens. The Brazilian artist and activist uses his drag persona Uyra Sodoma to teach kids in Amazon communities about conservation, enlightening them through elaborate, environmentally-inspired costumes.
