The First Gay School In The Country Opens In March

With public funding approved by the Ministry of Culture and the government of São Paulo, the NGO E-Jovem will be opening the first gay school in the country in Campinas this coming March. The idea is to provide a safe place for homosexual teenagers to express themselves, while also learning and promoting gay culture.

The school will offer free extracurricular courses on dancing, TV and web, and editorial production of fanzines. Dozens of students, homosexual and heterosexual, have already applied for the courses this year, which will all be taught by volunteers selected by E-Jovem. A drag queen course and other programs are already in the works for next year.

I don't know what your feelings are about the subject, but I love the project and hope that it proves to be very successful in Campinas so that other cities may follow.

The Paraty House




A summer home in Paraty, Rio de Janeiro, designed by renowned São Paulo architect Marcio Kogan, won best new private home design in Wallpaper's 2010 Design Awards issue. View more pictures of the house here.

And another Brazilian also made it to Wallpaper's list this year: Arthur Casas won best new restaurant design for Kaá in São Paulo. I haven't eaten there yet, but I will make sure to post pictures on twitter as soon as I manage to get a reservation.
