After setting off from a park near the White House, many marchers paused to wave at secret service agents who looked on as the procession passed President Donald Trump's residence. Monday is the anniversary of the mass shooting a year ago in Orlando that killed 49 people - mostly Latinos - at Pulse, a gay nightclub. "'Don't use the word 'tolerant, '" she said, according to Variety.

"We are women. We are Muslims".

Many members of the LGBTQ community feel ignored by Mr Trump - who at one point in his campaign unfurled a rainbow flag and declared himself a "real friend" of the LGBTQ community.

A group of LGBT and two-spirit people will be walking in a separate, "real" Pride march in Saskatoon on Sunday, partly because they oppose the selection of Saskatoon Mayor Charlie Clark as the grand marshal of the main festival parade. "You can definitely say it's got a sharper edge". Following the disruption of the parade by protesters, we were able to divert the parade from its scheduled route, thus ensuring that as many people as possible could watch the parade in its entirety. "And it's dead wrong".

"The fact that Trump did not even recognise Pride month is an omen of what's to come, and we need to mobilise now", Mr Dunlop said. She also added that Trump has appointed several anti-LGBT officials in the administration and that he has selected anti-LGBT Supreme Court Justice. "And he has done nothing to respond to the violence targeting gay men in Chechnya".

Huldai and others have worked hard to make Tel Aviv a top gay travel destination, an effort that has put his city at odds with Israel's traditional focus as a place of biblical pilgrimage. Although Clinton carried the endorsements of major LGBT groups, Trump questioned her commitment to the community.

The screen queen has been laid to rest in a mausoleum named for her at Hollywood Forever Cemetery, after family moves her remains from a NY cemetery.

"You are me, and I am you".

Almost 250 people took time over their lunch hour to attend the event, making it the largest flag ceremony in Pride's 25-year history.




American blogger Perez Hilton, who served as worldwide ambassador for this year's parade, said, "With all the bad things happening to gay, lesbian and transgender people all over the world, I am so happy to be in a place that is so welcoming".

The event also included a moment of silence led by Rev. Troy Perry, the founder of the LGBT+ inclusive church Metropolitan Community Church and Christopher Street West Association.

Police Chief Peter Newsham said: "We anticipated this".

"That's why [Clark is] marching with the city councillors, to show that we are moving forward as a community to become an inclusive and diverse city", said Papadatos. "Our visibility has been our greatest strength". The march is not directly affiliated with the Celebration of Pride, but the Capital Pride Alliance supports it. "It's a very peaceful statement that we are here, we're aware of what's going on and we're going to stand for what we believe is right". Adam Schiff, Maxine Waters and Nancy Pelosi, and RuPaul, the host of "RuPaul's Drag Race".

They're pressing the president to come clean about whether he has tapes of private conversations with former FBI Director James Comey and voluntarily provide them to Congress if he does - or possibly face a subpoena.

Vice President Mike Pence signed the country's first state religious freedom bill into law in IN during his governorship in 2015.

To be clear, the organization did not explain why it rejected the "Gays for Trump" entry.

"There's no question there's a lot of things to be afraid of", he said.
