Agence France-Presse reported that Trudeau marched alongside Toronto Mayor John Tory and Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne, who is a lesbian. The prime minister earlier in the day attended a church service the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto organized.

The parade took place less than a month after a gunman killed 49 people and injured 53 others inside a gay nightclub in Orlando, Fla. And marchers observed a moment of silence in honor of the victims of the Pulse nightclub massacre.
Trudeau marched in last year’s Toronto Pride parade. He is expected to march in Montréal’s annual Pride parade next month.
