But this year, in light of the Trump administration’s attacks on not only the LGBTQ community, but minority groups across the country, pride parades have taken on a theme of resistance.

Last weekend’s pride parade in Los Angeles was renamed the “Resist March,” and in Washington, D.C., supporters of gay rights in the nation’s capital had an Equality March.

His administration revoked protections for transgender students and he is considering a “religious liberty” executive order that would legalize LGBTQ discrimination.
