Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau marched with his LGBTI constituents again in this year’s Toronto Pride Parade.
The photogenic leader wore a rainbow maple leaf on his cheek and rainbow socks as he marched down the street, joined by wife Sophie Grégoire and their children as he high-fived and shook hands with onlookers.
“We celebrate the multiple layers of identities that make Canada extraordinary and strong, and today we celebrate with the entire LGBTQ community,” he said ahead of the parade, adding “Happy Pride to everyone!”
Trudeau made history last July when he became the first sitting Canadian leader to march in a pride parade.
Last week, he announced he would expunge the criminal records of Canadians convicted because of their sexuality, and issue an apology to the country’s LGBTI community.
“Our government will be moving forward with a process for the expungement of criminal convictions for Canadians who were unjustly convicted of a crime simply for who they were and who they loved,” Trudeau said at a ceremony earlier this month where rainbow and transgender pride flags were raised at the country’s parliament.
