Brazilian TV Gets its First Gay Kiss from Bruno Gagliasso


Bruno6Brazilian soap stud Bruno Gagliasso, whom I've mentioned here before, is set to shock Brazilian TV with its first beijo gay. Gagliasso stars in the soap América, and will plant a big one on one of his co-stars in one of the show's final episodes, according to scriptwriter Gloria Perez.

Although the Brazilian network airing the kiss has received some complaints, Perez notes that the amount of complaints is less than predicted: "Obviously I thought there would be some polemic and I expected a torrent of protests against the kiss. But this hasn't happened, which proves that our country is changing."


Who could resist a beijo from this hunk?

  4. This may sound sarcastic, or whimsical, or some such shit, but it's not:

    Why haven't we all moved to Brazil?

  6. >Why haven't we all moved to Brazil?

    Hmmm... Maybe these stats will tell the story...

    Rio de Janeiro's Security Secretariat reported that state police killed 593 persons during the first 8 months of the year, a 25 percent decline from last year's figure; however, unofficial reports estimated that approximately 3,000 police killings occurred during the year.

    The Sao Paulo State Secretariat for Public Security reported that Sao Paulo police (civil and military) killed 322 civilians in the first 8 months of the year compared with 868 civilians during 2003; off-duty policemen were responsible for 54 of the killings. The Ombudsman's Office of the state police of Sao Paulo received 165 complaints of killings committed by police between January and September.

    Death squads with links to law enforcement officials carried out many of the killings, in some cases with police participation. According to U.N. Special Rapporteur Jahangir, "many high-ranking officials" acknowledged that "many death squads had ties with state police." The National Human Rights Secretary stated that death squads operated in 15 states. Credible, locally-based human rights groups reported the existence of organized death squads linked to police forces that targeted suspected criminals and persons considered "undesirable"--such as street children--in almost every state.

    The National Movement for Human Rights reported that police and prison guards were responsible for nearly 80 percent of the reported cases of torture and that most victims were young, poor, Afro-Brazilian men from less-developed regions. For the period October 2001 to June 2003, it reported an average of 150 cases per month, a rate that reportedly did not change significantly during the year.

    Severe overcrowding in prisons and police detention centers was prevalent. According to the Ministry of Justice, between January and June, there were 331,547 prisoners in a system designed to hold 108,953.

    At year's end, 115 senior judges were under investigation nationwide on a variety of charges.

    There continued to be numerous credible reports of state police officials' involvement in intimidation and killing of witnesses involved in testifying against police officials.

    Trafficking in children for the purpose of prostitution was a serious problem. CECRIA found that the typical sex trafficking victims were darker-skinned women between 15 and 27 years of age, but researchers also noted the presence of adolescent boys as victims, some of whom worked as transvestites. Persons who fell prey to trafficking schemes typically came from low-income families and usually had not finished high school. Traffickers often lured victims with promises of lucrative work as dancers or models in Europe; beauty contest winners were cited as common targets. Most women who were trafficked internationally were older than 18, but younger victims were also trafficked with falsified documents.

    According to the Ministry of Health, there were approximately 180 killings of homosexuals during the year.

    ..... Other than that, I think you'd enjoy living in Brazil. Did I mention the beaches are fantastic?

  7. Well, it sounds as if the homosexuals are doing pretty well, by comparison!

  13. LOL@ Thander

    I may be old fat and ugly, but at least I'm not a Kate Bush fan.

    Sod off mate.

  14. KATE BUSH is God! (read the reviews on her new album, she's well loved here in UK) and you for sure is a fan of crap country american music for sure... ARGHH!!! Get Lost George Bush's follower!

  15. Thando, you're a muck savage. You're a gutless, sherry-drinking, thieving, layabout wanker. Who are you to be slagging President Bush? It's not like there aren't plenty of cute hoors in London you can whinge about. I'd like to see you stand for election, and we'll count the number of bogtrotters that come out to support you. Your entire constituency would likely consist of 12 corner boys, 6 buskers (including an Ethopian bagpipe player), 8 bean flickers, 19 Romanian beggers, and a krusty holding some bailing twine tied to a raggedy dog telling fortunes.

    Critics are like eunuchs in a harem; they know how it's done, they've seen it done every day, but they're unable to do it themselves.

  16. As a time traveler my prediction is that although they'll kiss very passionately the entire scene will be cut as the TV station has no balls!

  18. Mr Croce, I am so sorry for you!You must be a sad person who knows nothing about what it means to be Brazilian . May I ask you Please never come to my Wonderful Country!
    Keep your straight-minded views and cold-hearted behaviour far from our friendly people, that know how "TO SHARE", that know how to help others with love and kindness,with no prejudice. Although all the Social Problems we live our lives with a deep happiness,and , a part from Carnival Party, we are not used to wear 'masques'. Go to Iraq, there is much hotter than Brazil!
