This is how the LGBT community embraces a leader who embraces them.
On Sunday, while U.S. President Donald Trump was ignoring LGBT Pride Month 25 days into June, and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley was lamenting via Twitter about being booed at brunch in Manhattan by New York City Gay Pride revelers, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau was on the streets of Toronto receiving love and adoration from the crowd as he marched in the city's annual Pride Parade.
The Washington Post made note of how far a polar opposite Trudeau is from his American counterpoint by mentioning the dreamy world leader's choice of footwear. In photos of the Prime Minister is seen wearing socks that read "Eid Mubarak," a message to honor the religious holiday that marks the end of Ramadan, the Islamic holy month of fasting, which coincided with Gay Pride this year.
The Toronto Star newspaper noted that Trudeau wished the crowd a happy "Pride Mubarak," recognizing the dueling events taking place that weekend.
