Men were photographed wearing high heels in Rio de Janeiro in Brazil during what they said was 'an artistic' protest ahead of Pope Francis' visit to the beach. Pope Francis is on his first trip abroad as pontiff, spending a week in Brazil where over a million people are expected to see him. Brazil is home to the world's largest Catholic population.
