While Donald Trump’s White House won’t acknowledge June as LGBT Pride month, the rest of the world does. And on Sunday, there were marches across the U.S. — including the Equality March in Washington, D.C. and Resist March in L.A. — attended by celebrities.

Miley Cyrus headlined the Capital Pride concert, which was streamed on Twitter. The “We Can’t Stop” songstress, who has described herself as pansexual, showed off a slew of pix of her colorful outfit, including her rainbow Converse, a special Pride collaboration, and some seriously bedazzled jeans that spelled out “Washington.”


“We hold the key to change!” wrote Cyrus, who has been an outspoken advocate for LGBT rights for years and has her Happy Hippie Foundation.




Over on the West Coast, the Resist March went down, attracting loads of celebrities — and contempt for the 45th president. In light of the political climate, the typical march was replaced by a more politically-driven event with politicos like Nancy Pelosi, Maxine Waters, and L.A. Mayor Eric Garcetti, attending. RuPaul was one of the speakers and emphasized the importance of love.

“It’s about love and giving love, being able to receive love,” the host of RuPaul’s Drag Race said. “That’s our secret weapon. That’s the one thing they don’t have is our love, our music, and our joy.”

Here are some of the other celebrities showing their Pride on Sunday…

America Ferrera spoke at the L.A. event (watch below) — and made it clear that she stands “with my LGBTQ brothers and sisters today and everyday!”


Adam Lambert was also a speaker in L.A. “My name is Adam Lambert and I am proud to be a human,” he started his speech by saying. “I’m also gay, cisgendered, red-headed, Jewish, and a man, but that’s getting specific. Look, we have moved into an area of intense categorizing, in an effort to declare our identities. We use labels in order to help others understand who we are and how we live. And sometimes we need them to figure ourselves out too, because we want to take pride in our individuality. But do you sometimes feel that we’ve gotten a little carried away with all these labels? Cause at the end of the day we’re all human beings.”


Matt Bomer, whose family wouldn’t speak to him for at least six months when he came out, showed his true colors.
