Rio Gay Guide

DRAGS FROM BANDA DE IPANEMAPHOTOS BY SILVIANO COURTESY OF WWW.IPANEMA.COM. ALL RIGHTS RESERVED.

The closest to a Gay Street Carnival Party in Rio are the 3 parades of Banda de Ipanema. The first one is two weeks before Carnival, and then on Carnival Saturday and Tuesday. The parade of drag queens in front of the Banda is always a riot. You are welcome to join in a costume or just enjoy the moment. Don't forget your camera!
