Brazil’s new far-right and anti-LGBTQ president, Jair M. Bolsonaro, launched another assault on Brazil’s queer community on Twitter by tweeting out a NSFW video depicting one man masturbating while another urinates on him.
“I don’t feel comfortable showing it,” Bolsonaro tweeted, “but we have to expose the truth to the population knowing and always taking their priorities.”
“This is what has turned many street blocks in the Brazilian carnival. Comment and remove your conclusions,” he added.
He included the graphic 40-second video which appears to be from a Carnival celebration, the equivalent of New Orleans’ Mardi Gras celebration, but did not provide further context to the video.
A quick Google search yielded dozens of videos of straight couples engaging in public sex acts at Carnival.
Não me sinto confortável em mostrar, mas temos que expor a verdade para a população ter conhecimento e sempre tomar suas prioridades. É isto que tem virado muitos blocos de rua no carnaval brasileiro. Comentem e tirem suas conslusões: pic.twitter.com/u0qbPu9sie

In a subsequent tweet, Bolsonaro asked his followers: “What is a golden shower?”
O que é golden shower?

In 2002, Bolsonaro said in an interview “if I see two men kissing in the street, I will beat them.”
In a 2011 Playboy interview, the far-right leader said he would be “incapable of loving a gay son.”
In 2013, he told gay journalist Stephen Fry “no father is ever proud of having a gay son.”
And in 2017, a Brazilian court ordered him to pay a $150,000 fine for hate speech after claiming in a televised interview that his family would never produce a queer child since every member of his family had “a good education.”
