Originally published in GPS.OutTraveler.com

Most LGBT travelers know that Rio’s Carnival (Mardi Gras celebration) is a white-hot and gay-popular event. Fewer know that many gay Brazilians go to Florianopolis to celebrate. This year’s festivities, March 5-8 will be hotter than ever.

This sultry island town is located to the south of Brazil (here’s a map) and is becoming the go-to hot spot for in-the-know LGBT jetsetters. Mix Brasil, the main LGBT site in Brazil, already crowned Florianopolis the gay-est Carnival in Brazil in 2011.
