Toronto's police force was first barred in 2016 after activist group Black Lives Matter temporarily halted the parade, demanding uniformed police, their floats and cruisers be excluded because of troubles between officers and the black community.

Everyone from dignitaries to organizers and spectators said the recent tensions weren't far from their minds. PRIDE PARADE VIEWING PARTIESThe celebration for the Pride Parade takes over the city's Boystown neighborhood. Olivia Nadler, a CT resident attending her third parade, said "people that are oppressed are not going to go away, they're not going to be quiet, they're not going to be ignored".

Mike Morris, a 29-year-old nursing student who came to the parade bare-chested and in a rainbow Speedo, said the allegations against McArthur and strain between the community and police reaffirmed his desire to attend the parade. "I am marching because of the amount of tragedy this community has felt and as a white person I feel the need to support and try to help provide a louder voice to our queer brothers and sisters", says Ms. Zylsky.
