Justin Trudeau will soon be making history as the first sitting Canadian Prime Minister to march in a gay pride parade. 

On July 3, Trudeau will participate in the Toronto parade, as the organizers announced via Twitter on Monday afternoon. Trudeau responded saying he's looking forward to participating again (in previous years the Canadian heartthrob has taken part, but that was before his tenure as the country's leader).

Gay Syrian refugees will also have their own contingent in the march.

Scores of people took to Twitter to express their jubilation and to commend Trudeau for his support of the LGBT community.

Then the occasional thirsty Trudeau-supporter:


"[It's] big news in Canada but big news around the world," Mathieu Chantelois, executive director of Pride Toronto, told BuzzFeed Canada. "Not only because he is probably the sexiest politician alive but also because there has never been a leader of a country to walk in a parade, at least not that we know of."
