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"!

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.
