LGBTQ Activists in Brazil Use Social Media to Spread Awareness, Acceptance

LGBTQ Activists in Brazil Use Social Media to Spread Awareness, Acceptance | LGBT New Media | Scoop.it
LGBTQ activists in Brazil tell NBC OUT they are using social media to spread messages of awareness and acceptance in the country.
Matt Skallerud's insight:

Pedro HMC had a very strong reaction when a conservative Brazilian politician proposed early last year that there be a Heterosexual Pride Day in Brazil. "I was so angry about it," HMC said. "We are a minority, and as a gay man in Brazil, I don't have the same rights, and this politician is wanting to make a 'Straight Pride Day.' For what?" The young filmmaker and resident of São Paulo decided to funnel his anger into his creativity and made a two-minute parody video of the proposal on his YouTube channel, Põe na Roda.
