WATCH: Pride Parade Clips Show Shocking and Bizarre Moments — with Children in Attendance


Cities around the United States held parades and other events over the weekend to celebrate Pride Month. Bizarre displays and antics from attendees have since appeared on social media, with a few videos showing that children were present. Here are several disturbing moments from the latest round of Pride parades.

In one viral video from the weekend, two Pride parade attendees explained that they knew they were gay at age 10, adding, “but I wasn’t, like, clear on my gender.”

“I think I was around 10 when I started questioning if I was bi, and then since then it was kind of, like, a slippery slope, because I was like, ‘Am I bi? Omni? Lesbian?’ and now recently I’ve been, like, ‘Am I pan?’ But then I, like, I think now I’m starting to realize that I’m queer,” one explained.

“But yeah, it started around 10,” the Pride parade attendee continued. “It wasn’t, like, fully formed, but I guess, like, that’s when I realized, ‘Wait, that’s a possibility?'”

After being asked what she identifies as, the attendee said, “I am genderqueer trans-masc, and queer,” explaining that “trans-masc is, like, people under the non-binary umbrella identifying, like, or presenting masc [masculine].”

“I’m trans, and my sexuality is unlabeled. I use he/him pronouns,” the second attendee added.

“And I use he/they pronouns,” the other chimed in.

In another clip, one woman admitted that she did not know what she identified as, stating, “I don’t know. Gender-neutral or gender fluid. I think that’s what they said, I don’t know. I’m confused.”

Other images from the weekend showed that children were in attendance at Pride-themed events.

One video showed an adult encouraging a little girl to wave at men dressed in women’s clothing while other men walked by, clad in rainbow-colored speedos with tight bulges on display.

The L.A. Pride music festival on Saturday was described as an “all-ages” event, according to a report by Los Angeles Daily News.
