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.
