Brazil: Gay Bashing on the Rise in Sao Paolo?
Two more gay men were attacked in Sao Paulo, Brazil's major tourist areas, Paulista Avenue Oct. 8. According to Edison Bernardo DeSouza of BrazzilMag, a gay couple was kicked and punched several times after a female friend of theirs rebuked the flirtations of the attackers.

"They said we were crazy faggots and that we should die before spreading diseases around," one of the victims, Marcos Paulo Villa, told Bandeirantes TV. One of the victims (pictured here) had bruises, cuts, and a broken foot.
