2013 is the year of the Gay Pride Celebration in Sao Paulo. For an entire month, both the official and the parallel programs offered a rich mix of events to those who attended.

According to the organizers, 3.5 million people gathered on Sunday June 02 in Sao Paulo, Brazil to take part in one of the largest parades in the world.

The goal of the event was to make a public statement about LGBT community. The 2013 Sao Paulo Gay Pride Parade was under the theme “Back to the closet, never again! Union and awareness in the fight against homophobia”.

The Month of LGBT Pride in Sao Paulo was born from the experience of organizing parades and has added more activities with the years such as The Cycle of Debates, the LGBT Cultural Fair, the Citizenship Award in Respect of Diversity, and the successful Gay Day.
