This weekend, Canadian Prime Minister and resident political heartthrob Justin Trudeau joined his LGBT constituents in celebrating Pride in Toronto. With a rainbow maple leaf on his cheek and Ramadan-themed socks on his feet, his stomped across the streets, shaking hands and stealing hearts. 

"We celebrate the multiple layers of identies that make Canada extraordinary and strong, and today we celebrate with the entire LGBTQ community." Trudeau told reporters before proclaiming, "Happy Pride to everyone!" and joining the annual parade. 

Canadians boasted that this is the second time the Trudeau has joined in a Pride march, unlike U.S. president Donald Trump, who has yet to recognize Pride Month in any shape or form. 

Trudeau spoke out in support of gender-neutral driver's licenses and IDs to Canadian news outlets prior to joining in the march, according to The Guardian. He also criticized the restrictions on queer men's ability to donate blood, calling minor changes  “not good enough.” According to Canadian Blood Services, men who have sex with other men are permitted to donate after one year of abstinence, which is a recent lift on the five-year ban.

While some rejoiced over the PM's support for same-sex love, others took the opportunity to voice how much they'd like to love up on him.
