Prime Minister Justin Trudeau will march in the Vancouver Pride Parade July 31 according to the Vancouver Pride Society.

Trudeau has marched in the Vancouver parade on two previous occasions but this will be his first appearance as prime minister.

He announced he will march in the July 3 Toronto Pride Parade earlier this year. 

Trudeau has been a vocal advocate of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights.

Earlier this month he raised a Pride flag on Parliament Hill in recognition of the people who have "fought a long time" to secure equal rights for LGBT Canadians.
