Categories: Latin America, Western Europe, Brazil, Portugal, LGBTQ+, Migration & Immigration, Youth

On the blog No que tange, Maycon Lopes shares [1] [pt] his experiences of being a homosexual in Brazil, where homophobia “motivates terrible killings”, and compares to situations he faced while living in Portugal for a year: “Portuguese society isn't violent […] however gays aren't so on sight”. He felt an “apparent invisibility” of LGBT in the country.
