Graça Maria da Fonseca Caetano Gonçalves (born 13 August 1971)[6] is a Portuguese politician who has served as Minister of Culture in the government of Prime Minister António Costa since 15 October 2018.[5][7] Fonseca graduated with a law degree from the University of Lisbon, has a master's degree in economics from the University of Coimbra, and obtained a PhD in sociology from ISCTE - University Institute of Lisbon. From 26 November 2015 to 15 October 2018,[8] Fonseca served as Secretary of State Assistant and of Administrative Modernisation.[9]

When she came out publicly, in an interview to newspaper Diário de Notícias in 2017,[10] she was the first gay member of a government cabinet ever to disclose their sexual orientation in Portugal.[11] Since taking office as Minister of Culture in 2018, she is the first openly gay Portuguese government minister.[12]

In July 2020, when asked by a reporter about the pressure cultural workers were facing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, instead of responding to the question, she said she had to leave for a late-afternoon drink, using an anglicism that some critics considered insensitive. [13] Her response was widely panned by the Portuguese press.[14][15][16]
