      When Toronto's Pride parade is held on July 3, Justin Trudeau will become the first Canadian prime minister to march in the parade.

      In addition to Trudeau, Finance Minister Bill Morneau, Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne (Canada's first openly gay premier) with partner Jane Rounthewaite, and Toronto Mayor John Tory are also expected to appear in the parade.

      Toronto will also launch its inaugural Pride month on June 1 (with an official proclamation and Pride flag raising at Toronto City Hall), and it will culminate in the 10-day Toronto Pride Festival from June 24 to July 3.

      Trudeau also appears in "You Can Sit With Us" video:

      Of course, Trudeau is no stranger to Pride parades. He previously marched in the 2014 Pride parade in Vancouver.

      But that's not all. When a federal election was called in 2015, Trudeau kept his promise to march in the 2015 Vancouver Pride Parade and launched his campaign from Vancouver. 

      Justin Trudeau also marched in the 2015 Vancouver Pride Parade.

      Trudeau, and three other party leaders, also previously marched in Fierté Montreal's 2015 parade but former Prime Minister Stephen Harper was conspicuously absent.

      Trudeau's willingness to embrace and support LGBT people has proved popular, as a photo of Trudeau posing with openly gay MP Scott Brison, his partner, and their twin girls, went viral in November.

      Keep your fingers crossed—maybe Trudeau will march in the Vancouver Pride Parade when it's held on July 31 this year?
