Brazilian Protest Puts New Meaning to Posting Photos on Someone’s Wall

On May 17, All Out organized a massive outdoor photo projection in Brasília, the Brazilian capital, in support of the proposed Anti-Homophobia law (PLC 122). All Out’s photo petition drew hundreds of submissions from around the world, some which were projected against the wall of the National Library in downtown Brasília. Brazil has one of the highest rates of attacks and murders of LGBT people in the world, and the projection accompanied a vigil in memory of the over 260 LGBT Brazilians who lost their lives to homophobic or transphobic violence in 2010.
