Justin Trudeau kicked off Pride Month in Canada by raising a pride flag on Parliament Hill for the very first time.
He was joined by MPs from all the other parties for the occasion.
Trudeau will also mark another milestone this year when he becomes the first sitting prime minister to march in Canadian pride parades.
"Canada is united in its defence of rights, in its standing up for LGBTQ rights. This is what we are truly celebrating today."
