Turkish police use tear gas to prevent LGBT pride march in Istanbul

Turkish police stopped protesters and attempted to disperse those marching for LGBT rights in Istanbul Sunday, a day after the governor banned the march.

This year, San Francisco Pride's theme was "A Celebration of Diversity", according to the event's website.

Activists carrying signs declaring "No Justice No Pride" and "Black Lives Matter" appeared in New York, Minneapolis and Seattle, among other major cities.

Activists for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and intersex rights had vowed to hold the event on Sunday despite being it being officially forbidden by the governor's office for a third year running.

NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO Large crowds turned out for Pride marches on Sunday in New York City and San Francisco, the two USA places most associated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights movement, with the East Coast city bringing a more political flavour to the event sparked by events there nearly 50 years ago.

Pride organizers said in a statement Sunday that the threats themselves should be dealt with rather than limiting demonstrations. They said they chose to "authorize" the arrests so the march could proceed after the activists had demonstrated for 10 minutes.

AP sources: US military chiefs plan to seek a six-month delay before allowing transgender people to enlist in the services. That has worked on both ends of the spectrum. We want to speak out, not one day but every day. The events passed peacefully without police intervention. They're trying to address it through a "good working relationship" with the NYPD. "We've come a long way since then". For several years, Pride Week in Istanbul attracte.

The goal for the organizers was to make sure Washington knows the LGBTQ community will not back down. "Get Used to It: We are Here and We are NOT Leaving!" "This is not a one-off movement".
