Forget the Gays. Idol Is Rockin’ The Trans

You think Adam Lambert was breaking boundaries by being (mostly) openly gay on American Idol? Then you haven’t been watching Brazilian airwaves. There, Ídolos features 20-year-old contesant Lívia Mendonça, a transgender gal who made it though the first round of auditions. No, we had no idea what the Simon-Paula-and-(really gay-ish)-Randy imitations were telling her, but they made her cry. Happy tears.
