Toronto’s Pride parade wrapped up Pride Month over the weekend, and it certainly didn’t disappoint.
Rainbow flags were waving, water guns were spraying and love was truly in the air. But this year saw many things that made the event a little extra special. Here are the ones we can count:
For one, our Prime minister made history
Justin Trudeau was the first sitting prime minister to ever march at the event. Can you say “finally?”

Just look at how much fun he had
But Trudeau wasn’t the only politician to make an appearance

Basically everyone was getting into the spirit

Syrian refugees made sure to attend
Toronto also hosted the largest trans march ever
That’s right, ever.

This was also the first time Canada celebrated pride for an entire month
You know, instead of just a weekend.
I’m sad pride month is over why can’t we have a pride year
MAKE EARTH GAY AGAIN
