São Paulo Gay Parade

The São Paulo Gay Parade had, according to the organizers, 2.5 million attendants.
Observers from the Guiness Book were present and, if confirmed, these figures will make the São Paulo event the largest GLS Parade in the world.

The Parade was absolutely peaceful, like in previous years. It is estimated that 700,000 tourists visited the city.
Several booths were assembled to collect signatures in favor of a draft of law which legalizes the civil union between persons of the same genre. Such draft already exists, but it´s dormant in the Congress; if 1,200,000 signatures are collected, the draft will gain priority, and will have to be voted sooner.
