Rio Gay Pride

The Gay Pride in Rio de Janeiro is one of the most important events for the gay community.

Every year thousands of people gather to march for about 5 hours on the seafront of Copacabana Atlantica dell’Avenida.
There are cars with big amps techno music, dj, drag queens and about 20 floats accompanied by boys and girls dancing and party.

For the occasion, the participants spread out above their heads a huge flag with the colors of the rainbow and with the words: “The heart has no prejudices, contains love”.

The theme of the parade in Rio Gay Pride: “There is no harm in our hearts, but love is important,” this is the thought that encloses the basic idea of the march, calling for an end to all forms of prejudice against LGBT people and calls for a more just and inclusive society that recognizes equal rights for all.

According to a report by AFP, Brazil has not yet legalized same-sex marriages. However, people in Brazil LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender), can enjoy the fundamental rights on an equal footing.
