Canadian PM Justin Trudeau creates history, joins LGBT pride march


Justin Trudeau made history on Sunday by marching with tens of thousands of people in Toronto's Gay Pride parade, becoming the country's first sitting prime minister to participate. The jubilant crowd cheered massively when Trudeau marched with thousands of people and paraded waving a Canadian maple-leaf flag bordered with a rainbow.

The procession observed a minute of silence to pay respect to the victims of the massacre in Orlando that killed 49. Organisers of the parade had expected one million attendees, though Toronto police have not released an official count. Taking selfies and shaking hands with the attendees, Trudeau walked along with Kathleen Wynne, Canada's first openly gay head of a province, and Toronto Mayor John Tory. However, this is not the first time the young prime minister is participating in the parade. Last year, he walked in the annual parade as head of the Liberal Party.
