World's Biggest Gay Event.

Two million people attended today's São Paulo's Gay Pride Parade. The blog 'Made in Brazil' has some good pictures.

"This year's massive turnout made the event the largest gay pride parade in the world, twice the size of the gay pride parade in San Francisco, California."

Same number of people attended Thursday's evangelical 'March for Jesus' in the same city. Some gays went to the evangelical's march but not vice-versa. I believe gays win, then.

"The parade's main theme was the legalization of civil unions in the South American country of 182 million. Civil unions between same-sex couples are permitted only in Brazil's southernmost state of Rio Grande do Sul." [Guardian Unlimited]
