Best photos from New York City's annual LGBT Pride March

Under blue skies and led off by Dykes on Bikes, the annual San Francisco Pride parade was greeted by almost 1 million onlookers and participants Sunday as the city's celebrated its resilient spirit and diversity.

The parade wound its way adjacent the entire length of Toronto's iconic Church and Wellesley neighbourhood, down Yonge street from Bloor Street in the north to Dundas Street East in the south.

This will be the second year uniformed officers have been excluded from the parade, but police will be on hand as the streets are expected to be flooded with as many as a million spectators.

Attendees celebrate the annual LGBT Pride March in New York City.

Toronto Police Chief Mark Saunders during an event honouring Pride along with his officers, held at police headquarters on Thursday June 14, 2018. "I'm getting emotional about it because I think it's so lovely when people are who they are". The self-employed landscaper was arrested and charged with eight-counts of first-degree murder earlier this year.

This marked the 48th year, and about 100,000 come out to watch.

Still, I hate to rain on Pride's parade - yet again - but it sure seemed like the police ban encouraged people to take a rain check this year.

Yet, despite being told they were not welcome in what is supposed to be an "inclusive" parade, Toronto Police were there on their bikes and on foot providing security - some $500,000 worth of security to Pride - that will be absorbed by taxpayers.

Among the signs people were carrying in the parade were phrases like, "Black and brown and trans lives matter" and "No more guns". Have questions? We've got you covered.

The theme for this year's march was 'Defiantly Different, ' which organisers say "speaks to the breadth of the LGBTQ+ community as a unified people and our tenacious individuality".

In addition to police, Singh also said someone else should have been at Pride - Conservative premier-designate Doug Ford.

Her sign said what was on everyone's minds, most especially those who watched the parade from afar, choosing to stay away once again because of ridiculous ban on police participation in uniform in the parade, a ban that started a year ago. "There's been concerns around a trust that's broken down", he said, calling for the end of carding.

"We need to come out together in a very public show of support for each other and the community as a whole", she said in an interview during the parade.

"We are just excited to be here", she said. Pride is made up of a lot of events happening simultaneously in the city.
