While some cities are celebrating decades of Gay Pride parades and parties this June, others are only just embarking on their pride parade journey.

Pride organizer Janison Santana, a Brazilian native fighting for LGBTI rights in Portugal, paints a picture of what the northwestern city of Braga is like now that they’ve had their first Gay Pride. ‘This year we are more organized, with the hope we get noticed more.’

Last year’s inaugural Gay Pride was the impetus to start the city’s first LGBTI rights group: Braga Fora do Armario (Braga Out of the Closet). According to Santana, half of the group’s members are gay, lesbian and bisexual, and the other half are heterosexual, signifying an important shift in the mind-set of some locals.
