    According to the website, which link I’m pasting below, the reason that many men dress up like women in Carnaval is the attempt of showing a kind of affection that, due to brazilian society which says that a man who shows his emotions very easily is an efeminate man, cannot be shown every day. That’s why there is no ‘bloco’ with women dressed up like man, for you can easily see women dressed up with man’s clothes at work, in the stadiums, at school, etc. That makes men restrain feelings and Carnival provides a period of the year that ‘everything is allowed’, because it’s pretense.
