The parade on Sunday began with a moment of silence for the victims of the Orlando, Fla., nightclub attack that left 49 people dead and many more wounded, ABC News reported. People lined up on the streets waving rainbow flags.
Clinton tweeted on Sunday a message of support to the LGBT community.
“Every LGBT American deserves to live, work and marry free from discrimination or violence,” she tweeted.
