If you plan on attending the parade on Sunday, I highly recommend that you leave all your documents and credit cards at home or at your hotel, and that you only take cash with you and keep it inside your underwear or socks. If you plan on taking your cell phone or  a camera, I suggest not keeping it in your pocket.

1 Million People Celebrate Pride Under The Rain In Rio

1102095

The light rain didn't stop over one million people from marching down Avenida Atlântica in Copacabana yesterday for Rio's 14th Annual Gay Pride Parade. From the top of one of the sixteen floats, the state governor Sérgio Cabral affirmed that "Rio will always be on the forefront of civil rights in Brazil," and said that he was sorry for the fact that there are still politicians fighting against gay rights: "People need to understand that if a man loves another man, that is their business and no one else's."

Rio's mayor Eduardo Paes guaranteed that the parade will receive more incentive from the government next year, when it celebrates its 15th anniversary. According to newspaper O Dia, the investment for 2010 may be of up to R$ 800,000, which is a significant number when you consider that the city spent a mere R$ 100,000 in the event this year. Just so you know, it is estimated that the parade brought in over R$ 45 million in revenue to the city last year.

Btw, Rio was just voted Best Global Destination at Logo's TripOut Gay Travel Awards. You guys better have already booked your tickets for New Year's and Carnival.

Rio Celebrates Gay Pride This Sunday (Finally, Right?)

Rio de Janeiro will be hosting its 14th Annual Gay Pride Parade this coming Sunday at Avenida Atlântica in Copacabana. I am not going, but it seems that half of the country is, given the fact that Monday just so happens to be a national holiday. Here is the party schedule for those of you who will be in Rio over the weekend:
