Florianopolis Gay Carnival & Pop Gay Party Brazil
The Florianópolis Gay Carnival or Floripa Gay Carnival is one of Brazil’s biggest LGBT events, attracting more than 50,000 visitors each year.
Florianópolis Gay Carnival hosts some of the most spectacular parades and street parties in Brazil. Other events include a beauty contest for drag queens and transgender people and live shows and music at Tancredo Neves Square. Deca’s Bar on Mole Beach also hosts popular circuit events.
Florianopolis or “Floripa” is an island resort on Santa Catarina with more than 40 different beaches. The 35 miles from south to north of the island offers beaches for every taste. The east side has the best beaches for surfing and the north and northwest beaches are very calm.
During Carnaval, Praia Mole and Praia Galheta fill with hundreds of gay men, mostly Brazilian and mostly sporting incredible bodies in incredibly small swim trunks. During Carnaval at Praia Mole, most of the people spend their time cruising up and down the beach, dancing on the beach or Bar do Deca.
Being one of the best carnival spots for gay and lesbians, the carnival is also famous for the numerous street parades held in the city as well as the excellent performances of all the samba schools participating in the annual Florianopolis carnival. Because of the small population in this town, unlike the Rio Parade, there are only 3 major schools that join in the Parade competition for the Florianopolis Carnival: the Uniao da Ilha da Magia, Consulado, and the Copa Lord. The Florianopolis Carnival is known for the parade in which the top 4 schools in Florianopolis battle it out to win the annual championship title. Each of the 4 samba schools will be given only 50 minutes to perform. Most of the small neighborhoods in Florianopolis have made up their own samba schools and blocos which is why there’s always a party in every corner of town.
