Lampião da Esquina, Lighting up Brazilian Press
Inspired by the American paper “Gay Sunshine”, in April of 1978 appeared in Brazil, during the dictatorship, the newspaper “O Lampião”, depicting the point of view of homosexuals on various issues, including sexuality. A group of journalists and writers from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo joined the project, fueling a publication that paved the way for the press at the time, addressing controversial issues at the period, such as racism, abortion, drugs and prostitution.
