Sao Paulo celebrates Gay Pride

Hundreds of thousands of people have taken part in one of the world’s biggest gay pride events in the Brazilian city of Sao Paulo.

This year’s theme was “ I was born this way, I grew up this way, I’m always going to be this way, respect me” as activists demanded rights for the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender community.

The parade is also a big money-spinner for the city with tourists estimated to spend the equivalent of 18 million euros over the week of festivities which started last week.
