It's the first time a presumptive presidential nominee from a major party has marched in the parade.

Hillary Clinton showed her support for the LGBT community by marching in the New York Pride parade on Sunday. It was the first time a presidential nominee from a major party has marched in parade.

Clinton stepped out of her motorcade to march for two blocks near the Stonewall Inn, where she waved and shook hands with parade-goers. CNN reports that supporters cheered and chanted, "Hillary, Hillary, Hillary!" She was joined by New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, Governor Andrew Cuomo, and actress Cynthia Nixon.

This was Clinton's third time marching in the New York Pride parade. She marched in 2000, when she ran for election as New York's senator, and in 2006, when she ran for re-election.
