Sao Paolo, Brasil, held it’s Tenth Annual Gay Pride Parade last week. It was one of the largest events of it’s kind in the world. Awareness and participation grows each years. An estimated 2.4 million people marched this year.

The parade was accented with revellers dressed in Brasil’s World Cup Soccer colors. Others came out in a variety of costumes. Parade floats were accompanied by lively music.

While the mood was festive, the message was serious. The theme of the parade was “Homophobia is a Crime”. The event was used to lend support to anti-discrimination proposals. While Sao Paolo is fairly open, and one region recognizes common law marriage, other areas of Brasil still need work.
