Among other issues, this artist has gone through circumstances such as a filming split in two by confinement, a technical and human challenge ("from which I have learned a lot," he admits) and even passing the Covid with complications (

There were times when I had a bad time and I felt weak ").

dangers of intolerance and that someone calls you a fag or similar niceties
