Millions turn out to celebrate annual NYC Pride Parade

Burnaby's lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community is set to have its first-ever pride celebration in the city. The move was created to speed the flow of the parade and avoid a choke point among narrower streets. Check out these handsome images captured from the 2018 festivities below.

McArthur, a landscaper, was arrested in January and subsequently charged with eight counts of first-degree murder. Pride activities this year have centred on improving health and wellness, as well as the community's vulnerability in the face of many challenges.

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.

Cuomo, meanwhile, was seen walking the parade route with a big posse including his significant other, Sandra Lee.

Toronto police say they received complaints about the alleged incident in 2016. As Nuamah and other activists have outlined, some in the LGBTQ community felt that concerns about the disappearances of men from the village were downplayed or outright ignored by investigators.

VAR works great when it catches a simple error, like the Spain goal in which Aspas was clearly not offside. But there is no doubt that his standards have slipped at the World Cup.

The atmosphere in this year's parade was much lighter than last year, when many marchers paid somber tribute to the 49 people killed in a mass shooting at a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida. The song was also played at the parade.

Once again, uniformed police officers were not permitted to join in the festivities. Tory and Ford have a contentious history, as Ford has been a vocal critic of many of Tory's policies at city hall.

"I definitely think it would be cool if there were a festival here", Heidi Warrner of Round Lake said.

Thousands of revellers took to the streets all over the world to celebrate Pride this weekend.
