Last week, Brazilian Federal judge Waldemar de Carvalho ruled that homosexuality could be considered a disease by overturning a 1999 resolution by the Federal Council of Psychology that forbade psychologists from offering conversion treatments to “cure” gay people. On Friday, September 22, thousands of people took it to the streets of São Paulo to protest the ruling. Photographer Pedro Pinho documented the demonstration for Made In Brazil.
