It is the largest LGBTQ march in South America and was listed by King's World Records as the world's largest pride march in 2006, with 2.5 million participants. Since its inception in 1999, the march and its related activities have been organized by APOGLBT (Associação da Parada do Orgulho de Gays, Lesbicas, Bissexuais e Travestis e Transexuais).

The São Paulo Gay and Lesbian Parade is supported by the Brazilian federal government, as well as the governor of the state of São Paulo and the mayor of the city.
