Meet the activist

Lady Drag

Location: San Salvador, El Salvador

She’s protested against

President Nayib Bukele

since Bitcoin became

a legal currency

She believes it will only

benefit wealthy investors

DRAG QUEEN AND ARTIST, MARVIN PLEITEZ, SAYING:

"The issue of Bitcoin is also an issue of the whole country because it affects us all. The issue of water privatization is also an issue. Many issues require us to open our eyes."

Pleitez grew up in poverty

often sifting through trash for toys

DRAG QUEEN AND ARTIST, MARVIN PLEITEZ, SAYING:

"I'm going to keep demanding dignity for people in need, protesting for minorities like the LGBTI+ population and my community, the teacher's sector, ex-guerrillas, entrepreneurs, and so on."

protested out of drag

but knows he catches more

attention as Lady Drag
