Brazil: Men dress in heels and skirts for Orquesta Voadora carnival

Over 90,000 people poured out into the streets of the Aterro do Flamengo neighbourhood in Rio de Janeiro on Tuesday, dancing to a mixture of New Orleans jazz and blues to create an impressive carnival for the annual Orquesta Voadora parade.

Transvestites galore revved up their passion for all things feminine, adorning high heels, short skirts and dresses, with some even clutching on tight to pictures of heartthrob popstar Justin Bieber.

After emerging as a cultural event when the Bloco Voadora Orchestra kept playing every Sunday in Flamengo Park, it soon became a hit with the masses to be one of the city's many carnival events, held before Lent every year for at least two million revellers per day.
