Gay Parade 2009 on Paulista

the flag

The biggest gay parade of the world takes place on the most important avenue of São Paulo, Brazil. Avenida Paulista is taken by millions of gays, lesbians, drag queens, families, journalists, curious pedestrians etc

The most interesting part of the festival is the costumes, which are vibrant, colorful, eccentric and sometimes really funny. These costumes are inspired by cartoons, famous movies, soap operas etc

When you slip the camera off your backpack they get crazy. I mean, the drag queens really want to show their creative costumes to the whole world.
