São Paulo Gay Parade 2013 – Photos

São Paulo’s 17th Annual Parada Gay sent seventeen Carnival-style floats down the city’s central Avenida Paulista with the slogan “Para o armário, nunca mais!” – a defiant message warning that the LGBT community would “never go back in the closet”.

The show provided a reliably friendly atmosphere, with dance music, colourful costumes and plenty of glitter, feather boas and flesh on show.

Politicians attending the event included LGBT campaigner Deputy Jean Wyllys, Minister of Culture Marta Suplicy, and São Paulo mayor Fernando Haddad.

Protesters made a fresh appeal for controversial government figure Marco Feliciano to quit his human rights role.
