Rio Pride 2016
The world's eyes were on Rio de Janeiro this summer when the Summer Olympics touched down. Against all odds, the event went off without a major hitch. But the city — and especially its LGBT citizens — still face significant struggles. At this weekend's Pride event at Copacabana Beach, revelers celebrated their wins, but also advocated for more government support of trans rights and other advances. There were some scuffles, but more joy than tears. See the revelry on the next pages.
