It’s hard not to crush on Justin Trudeau. He writes thank-you notes to little old ladies who knit him socks, casually kayaks down rivers surprising families at random and chills with former presidents like they’re old school pals. Clearly Canada’s Prime Minister didn’t just ace a “How to Charm 101″ class, he wrote the damn curriculum.
That grin tho!
The Prime Minister, who marched alongside wife Sophie Gregoire Trudeau and their two kids, looked laidback and relaxed wearing a navy blazer, pink collared shirt and chinos. Oh, and he completed his Pride look with two noteworthy accessories: a temporary rainbow flag tattoo on his cheek and socks by Toronto-based Halal Socks which read “Eid Mubarak,” a conscious nod to the end of Ramadan.
“It’s all about how we celebrate the multiple layers of identities that make Canada extraordinary and strong,” Trudeau said during a press conference before the parade.

Trudeau’s charismatic strut isn’t the only thing that’s got the world’s attention. His attendance at the parade is significant, too. This is just the second time in Canadian history that a PM has marched in the event–he marked the first last year. This year, Trudeau walked with fellow dignitaries, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory.

Politics aside, this is one human who’s leading by example, setting a tone for our nation and its people: inclusivity is in. Here are more of the most charming snaps of Trudeau at the 2017 Toronto Pride parade to make your day a little brighter.
