WELCOME TO QUEER RIO DE JANEIROFresh info about LGBT Rio, directly from Ipanema!
Enjoy our Carioca hospitality
We don't know, but the fact is that Rio has recently been selected the most popular gay destination in the world by a prestigious LGBT magazine. An estimated 1 out of every 4 foreign tourists coming to Rio are supposedly gay or lesbian.
As Carioca hospitality demands we would like to offer you cup of Brazilan coffee before we begin our journey. Or an ice-cold açai berry juice, with bit of guarana for that extra energy boost.
