New York City, in which four million people are expected to gather for Sunday & # 39; s WorldPride March, saw multiple Pride events on Saturday, including the 38th annual Front Runners New York LGBT Pride Run, which broke the Guinness World Record for the greatest pride charity run, thanks to its 10,236 participants, according to ABC 7.
LGBTQ youths and allies filled Central Park for the Youth Pride event, with Ava Max and others performing. Just a few blocks away, on Pride Island off Pier 97, Kim Petras and Amara La Negra were the ones who reached the stage.
Lightning and heavy rain led the NYPD to temporarily evacuate both Youth Pride and Pride Island events, which were held around 5 p.m. About an hour and a half later, however, Pride Island was reopened and concert goers could return to the venue, where Grace Jones would headline later that evening.
Millions of members of the LGBTQ community and allies around the world, from Mexico City to Northern Macedonia, also took to the streets on Saturday, decorated in rainbow colors and glitter to celebrate the Gay Pride.
Rainbow flags and umbrellas waved and the music started when the march along the Paseo de la Reforma avenue in Mexico City started, with couples, families and activists who wanted to increase the visibility of sexual diversity in the country .

Same-sex civil marriages have been legal in Mexico City since 2007 and there have been gay marriages since 2009. A handful of Mexican states have also legalized same-sex sexes that would be recognized nationally. But proud participants said that Mexico still has a long way to go to a more tolerant and acceptable place for LGBTQ individuals.
& # 39; There is a lot of machismo, much ignorance still, & # 39; said Monica Nochebuena, who identifies as bisexual.
Nochebuena, 28, lived on Saturday for the first time with her mother and sister in Mexico City, dressed in a shirt that said: & # 39; My mother already knows. & # 39; Her mother's shirt read: & # 39; My daughter has already told me. & # 39;
Human rights activist Jose Luis Gutierrez, 43, said the march is about visibility and rights, especially for Mexico & # 39; s vulnerable transgender population. The Inter-American Commission on Human Rights says that poverty, exclusion and violence reduce life expectancy for trans women in North and South America to 35 years.

For the very first time, the Pride of Dublin Saturday afternoon saw police officers from Northern Ireland among the more than 150 groups marching in what was believed to be one of the largest Pride celebrations in recent years, according to BBC.
Tens of thousands of spectators are said to have fled to Dublin city center for the parade, which included a surprising performance of Riverdance, while activist and artist Will St. Leger served as the Great Marshal, the Irish Times reported.
This year is especially important because it was 50 years ago that the Stonewall riots started on 28 June 1969.
The demonstrations at the Stonewall Inn in New York City are considered to be one of the most defining moments in the gay rights movement.
The following year, gay emancipation movements in the US ran as a token of solidarity that has continued every year since then.
The marches usually take place around the last weekend of June and this year the celebrations have taken place in cities around the world.
