    Gay couples marry before Bolsonaro takes office on January first

    Dozens of people exchanged vows during a collective ceremony held at Casa1, an NGO that provides support to disadvantaged LGBT youth.

    About forty gay couples got married in downtown Sao Paulo on Saturday, tying the knot partly out of fear that the new administration of President-elect Jair Bolsonaro could restrict same-sex marriage. Although his campaign did not express views against gay marriage, Bolsonaro's record of homophobic comments has caused alarm.
