Brazil Holds World’s Largest Pride Parade

June is the official month of Pride, and events celebrating the push for LGBTQ rights and the celebration of people who are LGBTQ are happening all over the world. The parade will be the 21st annual parade held in Sao Paulo.

According to ABC News, organizers of the event are expecting over 3 million attendees. Brazil legalized same sex marriage in 2013, but expanded rights has been met with a rising level of violent crime against the LGBTQ communities in Brazil. Brazil broke the Guinness World Record for the largest pride parade in 2009 with 4 million attendees.
