The São Paulo LGBTQ Pride Parade is one of the city's major events and the highlight of a month-long programme that includes parties, street fairs, film festivals, shows and the traditional Gay Day at Hopi Hari Amusement Park. The São Paulo LGBTQ Pride Parade is said to be the biggest of its kind in the world, having grown from 2,000 people in 1997 to include more than a whopping five million people today, who gather on the streets waving rainbow flags in condemnation of homophobia, racism and sexism. As with most Pride parades, many people choose to dress up extravagantly and the parade is accompanied by lots of fringe parties and festivities.
