About 40 gay couples got married in downtown Sao Paulo, tying the knot partly out of fear that the new administration of President-elect Jair Bolsonaro could restrict same sex marriage after his inauguration on January 1. Bolsonaro has attracted worldwide criticism for his controversial views, including on LGBT and women’s rights. In a 2011 interview with Playboy magazine, Bolsonaro said he “would be incapable of loving a homosexual son.”
