Go Canada! Dreamy Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau wants to make sure the LGBT community knows that he is with them. Trudeau will become the first Canadian prime minister to march in Toronto’s annual gay pride parade.

Trudeau also announced he will issue a posthumous pardon to a man who was sent to prison in the 1960s because he was gay. George Klippert spent six years in prison before being released in 1971.

“The prime minister intends to recommend that a pardon under the authority of the Royal Prerogative of Mercy be granted posthumously to Mr. Klippert,” Trudeau’s office said in a media release.
