From state-owned news agency Xinhua's English website:
Almost 2 million gay men, lesbians, transvestites and their supporters -- many in lavish Carnival costumes and waving rainbow-colored flags -- paraded in Brazil's biggest city Sao Paulo May 29 to celebrate the 9th annual Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade.

While Xinhua is enjoying the Rainbow carnival, Gaychinese.net — an online resource for gay people in China — has been blocked by the Nanny.
