Rio Pride

Tens of thousands gathered at Copacabana beach on Sunday to celebrate the 21st Rio Pride Parade.

Organizers said this year’s parade was focusing on passing legislation in Brazil that would allow adults to legally change their gender on identity documents and eliminate bureaucracy involved in gender confirmation surgery, reports the Associated Press.

They called on the public health system (SUS) and private health plans to pay for hormonal therapy and surgery.
