Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made history Sunday when he became the first sitting prime minister to march in the parade.
“It's a good first step but I hope that he doesn't just stop at pride, we're still dying,” said Francesco Caruso, who Toronto visited from Ottawa just for Pride.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau Marches In Toronto Pride Parade
The Canadian Press (The Huffington Post Canada, 03/07/2016)
Canada's largest Pride parade marked another milestone Sunday as a sitting prime minister marched for the first time in a colourful celebration that was tempered by last month's shooting massacre in Orlando, Fla.
A river of multi-coloured floats and marchers came to a halt on Yonge Street and stood in silence along with the masses of onlookers to remember the shooting's 49 victims, predominantly LGBTQ.
Trudeau said the Florida tragedy is a reminder that "we can't let hate go by.''

Canada’s largest LGBTQ event agreed to major changes Sunday after the Black Lives Matter movement staged a sit-in during the annual parade.
Marchers sat down in the middle of the Pride Toronto parade route, halting the procession for about 30 minutes. It re-started when Pride Toronto’s director Mathieu Chantelois signed a document, agreeing to the demands from Black Lives Matter Toronto.
Black Lives Matter Toronto co-founder Pascale Diverlus said the changes are necessary to make Pride more comfortable for diverse communities.
“It was not just black folk who saw a need for our demands,” she said in an interview with The Huffington Post Canada.
