Hello from Brazil - I am today (Jan/2010) the IGLTA (www.iglta.org) Ambassador for Brazil, and for 12 years I worked with the Gay and Lesbian tourism to my country. And really happy and proud to know that we have more than 150 Gay Prides Parades from a very small town in the Amazon, to the Beaches Pride Parades like Rio, Floripa or Fortaleza, to our big Sao Paulo. As Gay and Lesbian Tourism Brazil is a great destination to all LGBT People, from all over the globe. And I can say that you can choose the beautiful coast, or our rivers like the Amazon, mountains like Petropolis or Gramado - where LGBT are welcome and can enjoy a lot o fun. Brazils has also "gay beaches" in Rio, Floripa, Fortaleza, Cabo Frio, and more. Also you can count on me for more details in your next trip, send me a message to brazil@iglta.org.
