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.

A series of powerful "atmospheric river" storms are set dump historic amounts of rainfall across parts of drought-stricken California and the Pacific Northwest from this weekend, forecasters warn.

Why it matters: A strong atmospheric river, packing large amounts of moisture, is predicted to whiplash Northern California from drought to flood.

10,000 trees near giant sequoia groves to be removed after fires

"Upwards of" 10,000 trees near giant sequoia groves have been "weakened by drought, disease, age, and/or fire" and must be removed in the wake of California's wildfires, the Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks announced.

Why it matters: The damage to these trees, considered "national treasures," and work to remove them means a nearby key highway must remain closed to visitors as they have "the potential to strike people, cars, other structures, or create barriers to emergency response services," per a statement from the national parks.

Obama stumps for McAuliffe, urges Virginians not "to go back to the chaos"

Former President Barack Obama framed a Nov. 2 gubernatorial race as a bellwether for the Democratic Party and the country, telling a crowd at a campaign event for Terry McAuliffe on Saturday that "I believe you, right here in Virginia, are going to show the rest of the country and the world that we're not going to indulge in our worst instincts."

Why it matters: With just over a week to go before Election Day in the Commonwealth, McAuliffe is bringing out the big guns. The 44th president appeared on the campus of Virginia Commonwealth University to urge supporters to get to the polls.
