Justin Trudeau, popular Canadian Prime Minister, popped into a gay bar to kick off Gay Pride week in Vancouver. Trudeau took pictures and shook hands with patrons at the Fountainhead Pub and effectively becoming the first sitting Canadian prime minister to visit a gay bar.

This is not the first time Trudeau has shown his support for Canada's LGBTQ community with a historic gesture. In 2016, he became the first sitting prime minister to march in Toronto's Pride Parade, the largest gay pride celebration in the country. And a year later, Trudeau publicly apologized to gay Canadians who were fired from their jobs and the military during the Cold War.

He also proposed the Expungement of Historically Unjust Convictions Act, which eradicated the records of Canadians previously convicted of consensual homosexual activity and which was passed last June. (For more on this story and photo, Click Here.
