Revellers pour into rainy Toronto for Pride Parade

S.F., N.Y. parades headline Pride events from coast to coast

Viewers blow confetti onto the Toronto Pride Parade below as they cheer in Toronto on June 24, 2018. Three years later, Mayor Uhlman declared June 25 to July 1 Gay Pride Week in the city of Seattle.

While many surrounding municipalities, including New Westminster and Vancouver, have hosted annual LGBT Pride events for years, Burnaby has lagged behind.

At least two million people were expected as the 49th annual Pride March made its way through Midtown and Greenwich Village Sunday.

"We are reminded today of a awful tragedy that befelled this community and really the entire city and the whole country with the loss of the men".

He said the best spot to watch the parade will be at Broadway and Irving Park. "It's one thing to talk about being together today like we are, but it's another thing to make sure that we heal for the long term".

"I love the lgbtq ️‍ community more than I can say". Pride activities this year have centred on improving health and wellness, as well as the community's vulnerability in the face of many challenges. "It means despite politicians that don't think we should exist, that we do", Sax said. For the second year in a row, uniformed police officers did not participate in the parade.

Both Singh and Horwath said Ford should have been in attendance.

The theme of NYC's parade was Defiantly Different, and had plenty of celeb representation - from tennis legend Billie Jean King and singer Kylie Minogue to actor and gubernatorial candidate Cynthia Nixon.

"It is not surprising that he's not here", Singh said.

Among activists, supporters, and organisers were also celebrities to celebrate and show love to LGBTQ groups.
