Ireland’s openly gay PM Leo Varadkar joins Canada’s Justin Trudeau at Montreal Pride

Canadian PM Justin Trudeau has been at it again – breaking hearts and letting the power of love and equality shine bright, that is.

The political figurehead lead the start of Montreal Pride this past weekend, joining thousands of LGBT+ people in celebrating their love – alongside Ireland’s first openly gay PM Leo Varadkar.

38-year-old Irish PM Leo made history by becoming Ireland’s first openly gay Prime Minister, marking a significant step forward for equality in the once-staunchly Catholic country.

Many noticed that the Canadian PM chose to not carry the LGBT+ flag but instead proudly wave the trans flag – a move some online believe is a note to US President Trump.

Donald took to Twitter last month to announce that anyone who identifies as trans will no longer be allowed to serve their country, citing “tremendous medical costs” and “disruption” by trans individuals.

Supported by many from both political teams – Montreal Pride was certainly an event that showcased the warmth and acceptance of both its country, its PM and new friend…

Justin also live streamed via Facebook the march – gaining almost 500,000 views.

Members of their teams later took to their official Twitter accounts to post photos of the event and show their support for the LGBT+ community…

Are we allowed to move to Canada yet?!
