Super deluxe: the gay party dens of Sao Paulo

27 08 2015

It’s been an in-joke for some time that although the gay community loves to hold itself up as an enclave of aesthetes, fashionistas and interior designers, there is scant evidence of this in the tawdry places it choose to socialise in. Not so in Sao Paulo, though (well, dodgy downtown bar Cantho perhaps excepted…) But does any city in the world do high voltage homosexual decadence better than Sampa?
