Justin Trudeau popped into a Vancouver gay bar to say hello and grab a beer. The city’s weeklong Pride celebration kicked off yesterday. It’s believed to be the first time a Canadian prime minister has visited a gay bar while in office.
Trudeau made a stop at the Fountainhead Pub on Davie Street, shaking hands with patrons, taking selfies, and having a quick beer.
And social media blew up as the local news and bar patrons started sharing their excitement.
