Sao Paulo LGBT Pride Parade

The Sao Paulo Gay Parade is one of the city's major tourist events and is the highlight of a month-long programme of events that includes parties, street fairs, film festivals, shows and the traditional Gay Day at Hopi Hari amusement park. The LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transvestite and Transsexual) Parade is the biggest event of its kind in the world, having grown from 2,000 people in 1997 to over three million people today, who gather on the streets waving rainbow flags in condemnation of homophobia, racism and sexism.
