Millions of people draped in the rainbow hues of LGBT pride turned out for parades across the United States and United Kingdom this weekend.
For many, this year’s parades took on an extra resonance in the wake of the Orlando nightclub shooting, in which 49 people were killed. In all events, a minute’s silence was held.
New York Pride
The march in New York, held every year since 1970, began at noon near the Empire State Building and ended at Greenwich Village’s Stonewall Inn, the birthplace of the gay rights movement and the newest national monument.
Hillary Clinton, the presumptive Democratic presidential nominee, joined the march for a few blocks in an unannounced appearance. She waved while walking alongside New York Governor Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio.
Pride London is now one of the biggest one-day event held in the UK, and is one of the largest LGBT celebrations in the world, often attracting over a million visitors.
More than 300 groups took part in this years parade, including London Gay Symphonic Winds, Marie Curie and #PrideinFootball.
