Heading to Florianopolis

Praia Mole -- Florianopolis's gay beach

Where’s that, you say? Florianopolis is the capital of the state of Santa Catarina in Brazil, an island off the coast south of Rio de Janeiro. I’m heading there for a Board meeting of the IGLTA (International Gay & Lesbian Travel Association; IGLTA.org). I’ve never been and am looking forward to it.

One of the other attendees is Marta Della Chiesa, also a Board member and co-oener of Brazil EcoJourneys, an LGBT-friendly tour operator that can really show you this lovely region. The picture above is from Praia Mole, the gay heart of “Floripa” and it comes courtesy of Brazil EcoJourneys.

I arrive tomorrow via the fabulous and also gay-friendly TAM Airlines. Stay tuned for more updates.
