As soon as Riccardo Simonetti shows up somewhere, it's showtime. The man thinks about every detail and every outfit. Not only what he says should be a message - but often also what he wears. For example, when he wanted to travel to the Rhine last week to take part in the WDR's "Kölner Treff" as a talk show guest, he had actually put out a green suit - but then decided at short notice for a T-shirt with the words "Trans Rights Are Human Rights". He quickly had the lettering embroidered with some rhinestones so that the message sparkles properly when he is sitting across from the old feminist Alice Schwarzer, who recently attracted attention with her difficult positions on the trans movement.
