Massive crowds join in Brazil's LGBT Pride parade

(23 Jun 2019) : Hundreds of thousands of people are filling a main Sao Paulo thoroughfare for one of the world's largest LGBT pride parades. Well-known Brazilian artists also gave live performances Sunday as supporters cheered on speeches given by gay rights activists. The parade's 23rd edition is the first since the election of President Jair Bolsonaro, a far-right former army captain who once described himself as a "proud homophobe". The parade is dedicated to the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots in New York City. Some parade-goers carried signs calling for the president's ouster and screamed the anti-Bolsonaro rallying cry of "Not him!" One person yelled from a double-decker sound car: "We're here mainly to resist." "Considering all we faced in the last elections, this is one of the most important parades, to show that we are here and will continue here existing and resisting" said Diego dos Santos Oliveira, one of the organisers. Some participants carried flags of former imprisoned president Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva, demanding his freedom, while others screamed anti-Bolsonaro slogans.
