A video recorded during a concert offered at the end of July by Carlos Santanadiscovered the singer giving his opinion on transsexuality.

“When God made you and me, before you came out of the womb, you already know who and what you are. Then when you get older, you see things and you start to believe things that might sound right, but you know they're wrong," the musician said between songs.

But the guitarist went further, stating that there are only two genders: “Because a woman is a woman and a man is a man, that's all. What you want to do in the closet is your business. I agree with that."

But his reflection did not stop there, and he leaned on the comedian's way of thinking Dave Chapelle, who has been marked as transphobic. “That's how I am, like my brother Dave Chapelle,” Carlos Santana said as he clasped his hands during one of his concerts.
