Long Live Justin Trudeau

Long Live Justin Trudeau

Unlike, US President, Donald Trump, who has not recognized June as Pride Month, Canada’s Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau, celebrated June 26 at Toronto Pride.

Trudeau shared photos from the celebration on his Twitter account. “Love is love. #PrideTO,” Trudeau tweeted. Trudeau’s tweet was liked over 60,000 times and shared over 22,000. Trudeau also sported a maple leaf Pride tattoo on his cheek, and a pair of Ramadan-themed socks as he marched in the parade.

Long live Prime Minister Trudeau!

Chelsea Manning Marches at NYC Pride

Chelsea Manning Marches at NYC Pride

Released earlier this year from prison, trasgender activist Chelsea Manning, took part in her first LGBTQ pride parade in New York City on June 25.

Manning is the former U.S. Army soldier convicted by court-martial in 2013 for violating the Espionage Act after leaking the largest-ever number of classified documents to WikiLeaks. Prior to leaving office, President Barack Obama commuted Manning’s sentence and she was released from prison in May.

Manning marched with the American Civil Liberties Union along with Gavin Grimm. Grimm is the transgender teenager whose lawsuit over a school bathroom was remanded by the Supreme Court.

Manning tweeted about the Pride event: “honored to represent the @ACLU at this years @NYCPrideMarch lost my voice from screaming so much thank you”
