In this article, I will examine how Kuduro and YouTube provide a space for depictions of intersectional identities, and the ways they challenge stereotypes of racial, gendered and sexual depictions. This article asserts that cyberspace has become an important means of providing visibility for silenced bodies. To support this assertion, it explores the performances of Titica, a Black Angolan transsexual, on YouTube and elsewhere, asking how she has managed to subvert hegemonic dynamics and perpetuate queer identities. The result of this investigation is to reveal the neglected cultural dynamics of Black queer people.
