Uzo Aduba, Samira Wiley attend Sao Paulo LGBT Pride

Sao Paulo, Brazil — Stars of the Netflix drama Orange is the New Black helped Sao Paulo, Brazil celebrate LGBT Pride on Saturday.

Samira Wiley, who plays Poussey Washington on the show, and Uzo Aduba, who plays Suzanne "Crazy Eyes" Warren, were spotted among the thousands who attended what is believed to be the world's largest LGBT Pride parade.

When asked by a reporter among the crowd whether she was enjoying the parade, Aduba said that she was "loving it."

"It's just an amazing city. Everybody's so loving," Aduba said.

When asked how she felt about her character being gay on the show, Washington answered that she felt "proud" to represent the LGBT community.

"I feel proud to be able to represent LGBT people on a network that is seen to people all across the world," Washington said.

"The energy from the people of Sao Paulo is amazing. I went to New York Pride last year, this is so much bigger," she added.

Other Netflix stars were also in attendance. The cast and crew of Sense8 were in the city to film scenes from its upcoming second season.
