See Celebs Celebrate Pride & Show Their Support For The LGBTQ Community — PHOTOS
After a month filled with sadness and anger over the attack in Orlando, the LGBTQ community and their allies took to the streets to celebrate Pride parades across the country, in New York, San Francisco, and Chicago. Many Celebrities celebrated Pride, too, posting their support on social media and marching in solidarity with the LGBTQ community in the parades. While Pride is always a big deal, this year's is special for a few reasons. There's the fact that the 2016 event comes in the tragic wake of the Orlando shooting, in which 49 attendees of a gay nightclub were killed, but on a happier note, it also marks the one year anniversary of the Supreme Court's decision to legalize gay marriage.
The Orlando shooting may have led to increased security at pride events, but it did not deter many of those wishing to celebrate LGBTQ pride. In addition to the usual costumes, dancing, and frivolity, 2016 Pride events have paid tribute to Orlando in their own ways. While it would be understandable for anyone to be wary of attending a Pride event for safety reasons, the visual display of solidarity in the parades' massive turnouts is powerful. It's also uplifting to see all the below celebrities publicly support the LGBTQ by appearing at and posting in support of Pride celebrations.
