PHOTOS: 50 unforgettable Pride moments of liberation from this season’s parades

Prides across the world reported larger crowds than ever, which meant lines to join marches and get into rallies in places like San Francisco and Los Angeles. (And we don’t mean Trump exaggerations!)

This year had a decidedly political tone. But jubilant celebrations reminded us all that there’s hope in numbers. And Pride season is hardly over. Check out the GayCitie Pride calendar.
