Gay Pride Parade today in Copacabana

Today is the 15th annual Gay Pride Parade in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro.  Beginning at 1:00 p.m. crowds will begin to gather at the western end of the beach, Posto 6.  At some point thereafter (several hours) the collection of trio electricos and colorful, happy people will begin to creep up Avenida Atlântica until the whole Avenue is covered, the trio electricos evenly spaced.

Then the party goes until after dark.  (So you really do not need to get there at 1:00).


Here is the notice in today’s paper.

And if you live here you can see out your window that the always gleeful, dancing, sunshine fairies have been fast at work and have chased the rain clouds away.  Don’t be scared.  The fairies never let it rain on a gay pride event.  (At least, that is their mission.)

See you there.

Looks like such a great event! Beautiful people and Beautiful beaches :) I hope that you both had a great time and that the rain was manageable.
