Floripa LGBT Pride 2011

Floripa's Pride Festival- Semana da Diversidade- reaches its 6th year in 2011 and should be a great one, helped by the long bank holiday in South Brazil. More than a 100 thousand people are expected to attend this year.

The highlights are the Floripa Diversity Games (Jogos da Diversidade) that happen on Saturday 10th September and the Pride Parade ( Parada da Diversidade) that happens on Sunday 11th September from 2pm.

The Games were pioneer in Brazil and are growing every year, breaking stereotypes that gays only live to party. Well, the games are lots of fun too but they are also very competitive.

If you are in Florianópolis and want to join the fit crowd, call Pipoca Grando , the organiser and he will give you all the details = +55 48 91192656

The local clubs and bars have also special attractions starting on Tuesday, 6th Sept. Check out Mix Cafe, Concorde Club and, for the girls, Caravana Fusion Bar in Lagoa.

Enjoy Floripa!
