Members of Winnipeg’s gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered and two-spirited community paraded through city streets Sunday for the 25th annual Pride Parade.

Festivities kicked off at the Manitoba legislature, before the parade made its way down York Avenue and Broadway.

To help mark the anniversary, the legislature was lit up in a rainbow of colours on Friday and Saturday.

Celebrations ended with a dance party at The Forks.
