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.

Sen. Bernie Sanders wanted to keep his momentum after winning contests in New Hampshire and Nevada, while former Vice President Joe Biden hoped to keep his own campaign alive. The other five candidates were just trying to hang on.

What's happening: Seven contenders for the Democratic presidential nomination were in Charleston, South Carolina, for the tenth debate, just days before the South Carolina primary and a week before Super Tuesday. They spoke, sometimes over each other, about health care, Russian interference in the election, foreign policy the economy, gun control, marijuana, education, and race.

4 takeaways from the South Carolina debate

The 10th Democratic debate was billed as the most consequential of the primary thus far, but Tuesday night's high-stakes affair was at times awkward and unfocused as moderators struggled to rein in candidates desperate to make one last splash before Saturday's primary in South Carolina and Super Tuesday.

The big picture: After cementing himself as the Democratic favorite with a sweeping win in Nevada, Sen. Bernie Sanders came under fire as the front-runner for the first time on the debate stage. Former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg, who will be on the ballot for the first time next Tuesday, was a progressive foil once again, but he appeared more prepared after taking a drubbing at the Nevada debate.
