I don’t do any vulgar movements

Cuando se sube al escenario, Egoy se da cuenta de que el público no presta mucha atención al repertorio de canciones de Elvis que desempolva en cada actuación. “Siento que me miran y se ríen, les hago reír”, dice antes de soltar él mismo una carcajada. La risa es su estado natural. Sabe que siendo enano sufre discriminaciones, sabe que tiene problemas de movilidad por el arqueo de sus piernas y sabe que le contratan porque hace reír. No le importa, simplemente lo acepta y canta. Y se ríe.

ENGLISH VERSION

When he goes on the stage, Egoy feels the audience is not really listening to the bunch of Elvis songs he performs. “I feel they ‘re all looking at me and laughing, I make them laugh”, he says before letting out a guffaw. Laughter is his natural state. He knows being small, he suffers discrimination, he is aware his movements are reduced because of the shape of his legs, he knows he is hired because people find him funny, and he just accepts it and sings. And then he laughs.
