The annual pride parade in downtown Toronto on Sunday attracted about one million audience.

The parade in Toronto lasted more than two hours. Maybe out of the expectation of first-time audience with different cultural backgrounds, police and governmental officials were also seen in the parade together with the gay groups.

Among the governmental officials was David Miller, Mayor of Toronto.

David Miller is a supporter of gay marriages though he himself is not a gay.
