Vancouver Pride Parade 2016
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau runs to greet a friend during the Vancouver Pride parade on Sunday, July 31, 2016. He became the first-ever sitting PM to participate in the procession.
Alex Sangha was one of the annual procession's grand marshals this year and it was a big deal — for several reasons.
Sangha, who is the founder of an LGBTQ support group for South Asians called Sher Vancouver, was the first-ever Sikh grand marshal of the parade, now in its 38th year.
