This is a record of those events that was ordered by the brasilian gay maganize Homens, that gave us the rights for the not edited pictures. All the pics where taken with the consent of the represented persons, so most of them are posed, however, even so the comotion and fun that everyone had in being out without fear of being beaten or repressed, was so much, that gives a special touch to the pictures.
