Stars of Netflix’s hit sci-fi drama, Sense8, couldn’t keep their hands off each other as they marched in San Paulo Pride.

The city in Brazil has just hosted the world’s biggest Pride parade. And Brian J. Smith, Max Riemelt and Miguel Ángel Silvestre couldn’t keep their hands off each other.

The cast and crew of the show were in San Paulo filming scenes for the upcoming second season and crowds were treated to them making out on a float.

Recently, Lily Wachowski announced that she wouldn’t be returning to Sense 8, leaving her sister, Lana, to produce season two on her own.

She was forced to come out as transgender by the Daily Mail, but has been widely applauded for her bravery.

Hundreds of thousands of revellers joined the cast of Sense8 to support a federal proposed law to allow trans Brazilians to legally change their gender.

The bill also states that government health providers must cover gender reassignment.

Over a thousand police officers were on hand, particularly because protests were planned against acting president Michel Temer, the replacement for Dilma Rousseff, who is undergoing an impeachment trial.

While there is hope that legislation will be brought in to protect LGBT people, a law to punish homophobic crime has been stalled by Catholics in Brazil.

Civil unions for same-sex couples were recognised in Brazil by the Supreme Court in 2011.

Brazil’s Supreme Court in 2011 recognized the stable unions of homosexual couples, guaranteeing them the same rights as enjoyed by heterosexual couples.
