In an interview with the newspaper “O Estado de S.Paulo”, Tiago said that he never “came out of the closet” and that he never hid the relationship: “Maybe it’s news for those who don’t know me that much. who is an incredible person, who has been in my family for a long time”.

Homophobic speech by Patricia Abravanel:

On the occasion, Silvio Santos’ daughter minimized homophobia, asked for understanding with those who “is still learning” and mocked the acronym LGBTQIA+.
I need to try to tell you, aunt, how I felt watching it, okay? I think, first of all, sexual orientation is not a matter of opinion. It’s a matter of respect. You don’t have to be like me, but you need to respect who I am, period. Final, said James on video.
Tiago Abravanel also signaled his aunt’s request for the LGBTQIA+ community to be more tolerant:
It’s not a question of being radical. People suffer from it. People die for it.
