Millions of people packed New York City's streets on Sunday, Reuters reports, for the WorldPride NYC 2019 parade. It was one of the biggest of many LGBTQ pride celebrations around the world this weekend, per AP.

Details: This year's event marks the 50th anniversary of the uprising at the Stonewall Inn that sparked the modern LGBTQ movement. Many marchers highlighted the global fight for equality, per Reuters. While it was a joyful occasion for many, pride-goers in Istanbul, Turkey, were targeted by police, who used tear gas on them, according to the Telegraph. Here's how the event was marked around the world, in photos.

Turkish authorities banned the pride march in Istanbul, but the city's new mayor said groups were free to demonstrate as long as they didn't disturb the peace. Many pride marchers turned out only to be targeted by police, in a move condemned by Amnesty International.

Bob Woodward didn't want to join Senate Republicans in privately condemning President Trump but declining to do so publicly, he told Jonathan Swan in an interview for "Axios on HBO."

Why it matters: Woodward has covered 9 presidents, but Trump is the first that Woodward explicitly described as "the wrong man for the job."
