Yesterday's Pride parade garnered a lot of support from people throughout the Hub City, and across the Maritimes.
It also had an entry from the Canadian Military.
Two soldiers took part in the parade down St George Street yesterday, in full uniform.
Their vehicle was decorated with camouflage, and some military flags.
Ruben Avilla says they had the support of their chain of command at CFB Gagetown to enter the parade, and he says the Canadian Military has a zero tolerance policy when it comes to harassment.
He says he doesn't get bothered about his sexuality in the armed forces.
Meanwhile, one parade organizer, Paul Leblanc says their presence sent a great message to a lot of people.
He says it shows young people they can be gay, and in the military.
Other entries in yesterdays parade included a young lesbian couple who'd gotten married over the weekend, a number of people from other Pride festivals in Canada, and some local businesses that decorated vehicles for the event. (source)
