Garoto de 10 anos arrasa de drag nas passarelas da Semana da Moda de Nova York

Está rolando a Semana da Moda de Nova York, e entre os shows de casacos no frio e dois dias de chuva, todas as atenções estão voltadas para Desmond Is Amazing (seu nome real é Desmond Napoles, mas a gente adorou o nome de drag), um garoto do Brooklyn que fez sua estreia nas passarelas do Gypsy Sport’s Fall 2018 na noite do último domingo.

Não teve para nenhuma supermodelo. Até o momento, o grande nome da semana de moda de Nova York edição outono-inverno 2018 é Desmond, que se autoproclama “drag kid”. “Estou oficialmente morrendo. Sonhos viram realidade”, escreveu ele no Instagram sobre a estreia como modelo. Em entrevista ao site “The Daily Beast”, Desmond contou que desde os 2 anos de idade usa as roupas e sapatos da mãe. Fã do reality show “Ru Paul Drag Race”, ele já, inclusive, foi chamado de “futuro da América” pela própria Ru Paul.

A pequena drag queen ganhou fama dentro da comunidade LGTB em 2015 depois de comparecer na parada do orgulho LGBT de Nova York. Sua estrela só aumentou ao longo dos anos, e em 2017, ele e RuPaul apresentaram a abertura da primeira convenção da DragCon na Costa Leste juntos.

Napoles está usando suas redes sociais para o bem, ele é um defensor da juventude LGBT e fundou uma instituição para indivíduos de 20 anos ou menos chamado Haus of Amazing. Quando Napoles entrou na passarela, ele foi recebido com aplausos, gritos e muito compartilhado nas redes. Estava claro que sua energia animava o evento e muita gente estava ali para vê-lo.
