This fun and heartwarming reality series (which is in Portuguese, but subtitled in English) features members of the LBGTQ+ community supporting each other by helping with drag transformations and encouraging acceptance. Gloria and Alexia aren't afraid to offer constructive criticism, but they give their guidance with positivity and kindness. In doing so, they create a safe space for their guests to be who they truly are while welcoming them into a community where they will be fully embraced.

There's lots of makeup, color, and campy humor throughout each transformation, which makes the overall show entertaining. The up-and-coming queens and kings share some emotional personal stories about accepting themselves, and desiring the acceptance of others. This makes watching them transform into confident drag queens all the more satisfying. But the best part of A Queen Is Born is how genuinely likable the hosts are, and how much they want to make a positive difference.
