Millions Gather for Sao Paulo's LGBT Pride Parade

The colorful parade was first listed by Guinness as the world's biggest LGBT Pride celebration in 2006.

This year's theme was "Independent of our Beliefs, No Religion is Law! All for a Secular State," and was organized by the Sao Paulo branch of the Association of the LGBT Pride Parade, Brazil's national LGBT organization.

The event drew up to three million people, according to organizer's estimates, while the first Sao Paulo Pride parade, nine years ago, drew 2,000 participants.
