PHOTOS: What Pride Looks Like in a Rio Favela

The Complexo de Alemao favelo in Rio de Janeiro hosted a colorful Pride celebration on Sunday that could only happen in Brazil.

Rio's urban slums became infamous after the 2002 drama City of God, which depicted the violence and hopelessness of these neighborhoods. But the city's favelas are also filled with color and joy — evident in these photos of the Complexo de Alemao favela Pride festival held on Sunday. The style and panache is just so Rio, and so Brazil. Enjoy.
