Pride: Belfast flooded with colour for parade
Thousands of people have turned out in Belfast for the annual Pride parade.
Taoiseach (Irish prime minister) Leo Varadkar attended the march.
Billed as a celebration of the city's LGBT community and as a protest calling for equality, the parade set off from Custom House Square at 13:00 BST and paraded through the city centre.
A rainbow Pride flag was flown from Belfast City Hall for the first time. Lord Mayor John Finucane said it was "hugely significant".
Members of BBC Pride, a staff-led initiative which operates across the UK, took part in the Belfast parade for the first time.
The head of BBC Northern Ireland apologised to staff on Friday over "confusion" around participation in the event.
In an email on Friday, Peter Johnston said the organisation would not be "involved corporately" in the event.

The theme of this year's parade was 'Rights Now', as it aimed "to highlight the rights that are still denied to [the LGBTQ+] community".
Belfast's first ever Pride parade was in 1991, when about 100 people took part.
