NEW YORK — Hillary Clinton has joined in today’s march to celebrate gay pride in New York City.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee was accompanied by fellow Democrats Gov. Andrew Cuomo and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio and Rev. Al Sharpton as she walked along a part of the parade route.

Thousands stood behind barricades as the parade made its way down Fifth Avenue and into Greenwich Village.

The parade had started earlier Sunday with a moment of silence for the victims of the massacre at Pulse, an Orlando gay nightclub, earlier this month. Pulse owner Barbara Poma was leading the parade atop a Stonewall Inn float.
