Gabriela Leite, who founded Davida and Beijo da Rua, is the first sex worker to run for Brazilian Congress. A Kiss for Gabriela tells the story of her 2010 campaign as she challenges a male dominated political system to see if a sex worker, activist, wife, mother, and cultural icon since founding the clothing line, Daspu, can beat the odds and win the election.
These videos are part of an interview conducted with Gabriela for the extras on the DVD of the documentary A Kiss for Gabriela.
