There are a few gay nightclubs in Rio de Janeiro, I have listed them on this page. There is more than nightclubs on the Gay & Lesbian Scene (here after GLS) in Rio. On sunny days the beach close to Posto 8 (Lifeguard Tower 8) in Ipanema is full of gay from all over the world, straight up from there is Rua Farme de Amoedo where there is quite a few bars with GLS profiles. I have mentioned some of these places in my Bars in Rio section.
