Tens of thousands people lined the streets of Montreal on Sunday as the colorful Gay Pride parade headed down the city streets.

Athletic men in swimsuits and dancers in bikinis and colorful plumes shook their bodies to the tune of pop music blasting from giant speakers on flatbed trucks.

The parade's grand marshal Alice Nkom urged participants to support gay communities in places like her home country of Cameroon.

Marchers also carried signs denouncing politicians they consider homophobic, including French presidential candidate Christine Boutin, US presidential hopeful Michele Bachmann, and right-wing Italian politician Alessandra Mussolini, the granddaughter of World War II fascist dictator Benito Mussolini.
