Justin Trudeau wore a temporary tattoo at Pride and it hurts, oh, how it hurts

Who needs lengthy speeches and thoughtful public statements when you can say all you want to say with a pair of social justice socks?

Sporting a pair of Ramadan-themed socks, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and his family demonstrated their support for both the LGBTQ community and the Muslim community at Toronto’s Pride celebration yesterday. Not everyone could attend Toronto’s Pride, but that didn’t stop the internet from sharing photos of him and otherwise trying to tweet the envy away.

While there, Trudeau made sure to wish the crowd a happy “Pride Mubarak,” referring to Sunday’s end-of-Ramadan celebrations. Trudeau, who is the Hamilton musical made human, charitably disguised his dimples to make room for a maple leaf Pride tattoo on his right cheek.

He even tweeted that "Love is Love" because he can’t stop himself and we’re not about to stop him either.

And of course he made time to high-five a little girl in a Wonder Woman costume, because good things still do happen! Just not here.

We’re simultaneously jealous and want to throw up.

The theme of this year’s Toronto Pride was "inclusivity." C’mon Canada. This just isn’t fair. Why do you get to have all the best parade themes and why does your prime minister get away with a tucked-in salmon-colored shirt?

It hurts.

Look at this human musical.

President Trump won’t be celebrating LGBTQ Pride this year, but that’s because he’s been busy addressing issues of deep national importance like replaying the 2016 election and admitting to witness tampering on public television.

Happy LGBTQ Pride everyone!
