World's greatest gay parade begins
Homosexuals as well as their fans have actually filled the major opportunity in Sao Paulo, Brazil, for a yearly Gay Ceremony that organisers claim is the biggest on the planet with an estimated three million individuals.
The colourful procession occurred on Sunday under a bright blue sky, with floats shrieking techno music adorned with gym-hard bodies in bikinis and dance drag queens.
Organisers this year sought to put the gay schedule in political projects for Brazilian governmental elections in October by promoting the motif \"Ballot versus homophobia\".
Gay civil liberties teams say although Brazil is a relatively open society in terms of homosexuality, 198 gays were eliminated in 2015 in homophobic strikes.
The gay satisfaction organization running the ceremony claimed that given that it began in 1997, the event has actually become the biggest gay ceremony worldwide, surpassing events in San Francisco and Sydney.
The Sao Paulo ceremony is funded by the state federal government with sponsorship from Brazil's state-run oil company Petrobras.
