“We celebrate the multiple layers of identities that make Canada extraordinary and strong.”
Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has joined the celebrations at Pride once again – this time at Toronto Pride 2017.
Greeting spectators and those marching in the parade, it seems nothing was stopping the political figurehead from celebrating the power of equality with those from across the LGBT+ community. Shaking hands, waving and even the occasional hug, it was big smiles from Justin.
The PM even found time to paint a rainbow flag onto his face before walking along the city route. Isn’t he cute?
Speaking before the parade began, the PM said: “We celebrate the multiple layers of identities that make Canada extraordinary and strong.
“Today we celebrate with the entire LGBTQ community. Happy Pride for everyone. Happy Pride Toronto!”

Justin later posted about the celebrations on his official social media platforms under the title “Love is love. Love is love.”
He even streamed his march during the parade on Facebook Live, too!
The Pride festivities continued all day, but there was one man on everybody’s lips…
