For the many gay tourists who will be visiting the Cidade Maravilhosa, we have created the VamosGay Guide to the 2016 Olympics in Rio. It will build upon our current listings for gay-friendly hotels, restaurants, bars and clubs … and even places to hook up.
The opening ceremonies will take place on August 5 and the Olympic Games will run until the closing ceremony on August 21.
