Well, I'm brazilian, male homosexual and also a tourism bachelor. I have my own blog which describes my experiences throughout travel accross Brazil and New Zealand. I wondered if I publish my picture there, because its a public blog. But I feel courage enough to put there some days ago. It's true that violence against LGBT people is, unfortunately, a real problem in Brazil. I know about it, but we get used to it. For example, if you are a discreet LGBT, probably people will do not know your sexual feelings. Although these problems, Brazil is a great country to live nowadays and its people hospitality is very good. LGBT people are always welcome here. There are some tips to avoid violence, in general. I mean, before travelling to here, people may search the places that are safe, places that are unsafe at the city they wanna visit. I invite LGBT friends here to visit my blog and get some tips about my "brazilian way of life"!
