Rio – Marcus Lerroy, a luxury standout from Mocidade Independente de Padre Miguel, returned on Monday night (12) parading in the school’s first car. For him, his return is a sign of victory and a new birth. Marcus was hospitalized in a serious condition after being attacked by an app driver at the door of his house, in Madureira. The Civil Police investigate the case as homophobia.
“Being here today, as a highlight, is a great emotion. I can say that I was born again, reborn! I needed to be present today, it was a commitment to my school”, he said, moments before crossing the Avenue.
Lerroy returned to Carnival after having to undergo surgery to remove one of his kidneys.
