People carry balloons as they participate in the 2018 New York City Pride Parade in Manhattan, New York, US, June 24, 2018.

Current New York Governor Andrew Cuomo - the man Nixon is hoping to unseat - was also at the parade, wearing a white button-down shirt as he marched alongside his wife.

The crowds are packing the streets for the Heritage of Pride march, with rainbow flags out in force.

As well, marchers dressed in black followed behind the main parade in what organizers called the Until We're Safe march as a tribute to members of the community who were lost as well as those who fell unsafe in the community.

This year's theme was "The Many Faces of Pride". In a show of strength, residents gathered at Rajarathinam Stadium in Egmore and marched with rainbow flags and posters which read "love is too attractive to be hidden in a closet", "the power of black in my rainbow" and "queer and proud" among other slogans.

And both those goals were struck by Musa, who unnoticeably has recorded a better start to the World Cup campaign in 2018. So, he has sort of challenged Messi as Argentina's hero ahead of their clash.

'Messi Is Not A Leader. He's No Ronaldo'
I've been saying it since before the World Cup , there was no chance they would win it because of that defence. In their hour of need, Argentina need Messi's best once more.

The marches commemorate the riots that erupted in response to a police raid at a NY gay bar called the Stonewall Inn in June 1969. "Events like this are a celebration of the diversity in New York City and what makes us the greatest city in the world". To coincide with the event, a NY state memorial to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people that honors victims of intolerance opened to the public on Sunday. It was designed by artist Anthony Goicolea, of Brooklyn.

On foot, on roller skates, on motorbikes or riding on some 100 spectacularly colorful floats, participants moved slowly on a hot, sunny day along the two-mile (three-kilometer) parade route from historic Stonewall Inn in Greenwich Village, over to Fifth Avenue, then up to 29th Street. Cuomo formed the commission to come up with an LGBT memorial after the Pulse nightclub shooting in Orlando that left 49 people dead.

The parade's grand marshal this year was tennis legend Billie Jean King, 74, a lesbian and an outspoken defender of gender equality and LGBTQ rights, who rode in a carriage under a big, rainbow-colored parasol.
