Hundreds of thousands of people (some estimate over 600,000) attended the 35th annual Pride Parade in Vancouver on Sunday.

As has become the norm, the huge crowds — supporting the LGBT community — attracted several high profile politicians.

It's actually kind of fun to see our politicians at these types of events. Most of them really get into the spirit and come sans their usual conservative apparel.

Some like Liberal MP Dr. HedyFry came with ahem...very little apparel.

Fry is always a fan favourite at this event. Here is one of her 'grand entrances' from 2010.

B.C. Premier Christy Clark was in attendance after skipping last year's event.

NDP leader Thomas Mulcair also got into the spirit.

Mulcair was joined by B.C. NDP leader Adrian Dix, dressed in NDP orange, in front of a sign that read "NDP studs."

In previous years, men and women were behind him holding signs that read "I love Dix."

It appears that a good time was had by all.
