Beautiful photos from Brazil’s mass same-sex wedding ceremony


Dozens of same-sex couples tied the knot Saturday at a mass gay wedding ceremony in São Paulo, Brazil. Many LGBTI people in the South American country are fearful for their rights following the election of Jair Bolsonaro, to the position of President. The far-right leader of the Social Liberal Party, Bolsonaro takes office 1 January 2019. Bolsonaro has made numerous homophobic statements, including, ‘Yes, I’m homophobic – and very proud of it’. He also once suggested that if parents see their son ‘acting a little bit gay’ they should beat him ‘to make him normal’. Same-sex marriage has been legal in Brazil since 2013. However, some gay and bisexual people worry that once in office, Bolsonaro may roll back some of their rights.
