PHOTOS: No It’s Not Carnival—It’s The Rio Gay Pride Parade!


On Sunday, Rio governor Sergio Cabral joined more than 700,000 people at the 16th annual Rio de Janeiro gay pride parade in Copacabana beach, where revelers enjoyed springlike weather, live music, colorful barely-there costumes, trio eletricos (motorized floats) and a spirit of community.

This year’s theme, “We Are All Equal Before the Peace,” is a play on “We Are All Equal Before the Law,” a phrase from the Brazilian constitution. Paradegoers carried signs and chanted slogans urging the government to enact stricter laws against anti-gay attacks and to approve same-sex marriage.

      #10 is priceless. He totally paid that hustler to hold his hand to look like their
      together and every one around them is like “What is he doing with him?”

      Number 12 is precious. Kind of cute, really. Nothing like young love…lust…or…”what’s your name again…oh, never mind”.

      *Note To Self: …Must go to Rio someday.
