New York's march, often the most attended Pride parade in the world, is always a sight to behold.

While celebrating the LBGTQ+ communities is a central component of the month long celebration, the 38th annual parade adhered to its protest roots, taking time to reflect and advocate for how much more work needs to be done.

Canada, the United States and various countries across South America get particularly involved in Pride month, with thousands of people showing up to support their city's Pride parade.

"I love the lgbtq ️‍ community more than I can say".

Members of the LGBTQ community have said the disappearances and deaths of the men were not seriously investigated by police, who parade organizers banned from marching in the event while in uniforms for the second year in a row.

This year's theme is "Generations of Strength".

Once again, uniformed police officers were not permitted to join in the festivities.
