October 4th was the LGBT Pride event in our home town of Niterói. It was calm by our old San Francisco standards but a hoot all the same. There were countless gorgeous boys and men, rough and tumble lesbians (as well as the lipstick variety) and of course the requisite drag queens who always steal the show.
There were a good 20,000 people or so, several trio electricos blasting out dance music and lots of onlookers as well. We slowly made our way along Icaraí beach soaking it all up.
There’s more fun to come. Niterói’s party was just the precursor to the main event coming up in Rio on November 1st.
