Left-wing leader Alberto Fernández was sworn in as the President of Argentina last month. His 24-year-old son named Estanislao is also famous in the country as a drag queen ‘DYHZY’. He was there not only to support his father but to speak for the rights of the country’s LGBT community, as he brought a Pride flag to the ceremony, which was not left unnoticed in the Argentinean press. Estanislao responded by showing it off in an Instagram video, joking: “I’d like to clarify that the famous handkerchief that I had… it wasn’t a handkerchief, it was a flag, definitely a flag!” Argentina does not criminalize homosexuality and it has marriage equality recognized, but its society sticks to the conservative attitudes, often meaning opposition to the LGBT community. However, the young drag artist has had strong support from his father, who has said: “I want for my son the same as any father, for him to be happy.” He said in a radio interview ahead of the election: “I have pride in my son, how can I not be proud? My son is a rights activist in that community. I would worry if my son was a criminal, but he is a great man.”
