Brazilian Gay Pride Gets Political

Brazilian Gay Pride Gets Political


The annual gay pride parade in Sao Paulo, Brazil, billed as the world's largest, sent a pro-equality message to politicians Sunday, using the slogan "Vote Against Homophobia."

The Associated Press reported on the parade, now in its 14th year, which drew more than 3 million people to South America's largest city.

"Dancing to music blasting from sound trucks Sunday, they condemned homophobia and demanded equal rights for homosexuals," the AP said of participants. "They also said they would push candidates in this year Brazil's presidential election to support their cause."
