To expose “the truth” about the gay community, this week, Brazil’s President Jair Bolsonaro tweeted a NSFW video of a guy peeing on a masturbating man during Carnival, the country’s raucous week-long annual celebration.
It was a classic, sleazy move from the notoriously anti-LGBTQ leader: Find a “shocking” image of a marginalized community, and then share it as proof of their intrinsic depravity. It’s a move taken right out of the far-right Christian playbook.
But Bolsonaro doesn’t know the half of it. Yeah, some of us into watersports, but even more of us are into painting our bodies, kissing in public and serving sickening drag in a pair of fishnets and heels.

The color, style and attitude gay men bring to Carnival are part of what make it one of the most famous and well-attended celebrations around the world.
So if he really wanted to make an impression and show the truth about us, Bolsonaro should’ve shared these 10 “shocking” pics below. They show us at Carnival being our most campy, unembarrassed and scandalous selves. (What will the neighbors think?)
We can rock tights and a cape like no other (and check out those sparkly armlets and codpiece)!
We’re not just super — we’re downright superqueeroes.
Sometimes we bring our own blow-up friends, flower-crowns, earrings and fishnet bodysuits.
And we feel mighty real in a head wrap and traditional dress — viva Brazil!
Did we mention our love of necklaces, headdresses, fringe-skirts and cone bras?
And if you think water sports are bad, some of us love getting completely soaked with our pals.
Some of us kiss … out in public … where the children can see. (Gasp!)
Other times, we wear body paint and lead the kids in making beautiful music.
But we won’t be put down — we are proud unicorns, and we aren’t going anywhere, Jair.
Conservatives hate people who are not gender confirmative and won’t agree that white men should rule over all of us.
PLAYS WELL WITH OTHERS
A vile smcubag who seems just a little bit too interested in Gay fetishes….
Better question is WHY do we allow ourselves to be associated with vile displays of public lewdness, and feel offended when someone brings that up as a negative, and instead of distance ourselves from it, the LGBT community wants to defend those public displays of lewdness?
You would never think it when you see ages like this, but the Brazilian obesity epidemic is nearly as bad as the U.S.’s.
Is it bigoted to feel uncomfortable that children are in a parade that had a lot of sexual suggestiveness to it?
Is like when that trans kid was doing an act in a gay bar, getting notes thrown on stage.
Can I think the kid has a right to be who they are, but to also feel the patents and bar owners are wrong to let the kid perform in a sexualised way on stage in front of adults?
No, that’s just being a decent human being with discernment of right and wrong. Sorry, not sorry, but protecting children is above “tolerance” for public lewdness and licentiousness.
