İstanbul Pride: At least 35 LGBT activists detained throughout Sunday

Bicycles will not be permitted on CTA trains for most of the day, and strollers and carts must be folded before boarding all CTA buses and trains.

Non-uniformed officers are still allowed to participate in the Toronto march with community groups, the city or their own group.

A similar gay pride parade in 2014 drew tens of thousands of people and was one of the largest pro-LGBTI events in the mainly Muslim region.

According to AFP, officers arrested at least 12 people, including a photographer who works for the French news agency, for rioting.

In 2016, the march was banned by the Governor's Office as Turkey saw attacks claimed by the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) or the outlawed Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK).

"I think we move forward from this, and I think there will tough conversations to be had after Pride is done", she said.

According to Reuters, the group Alperen Hearths threatened to shut down the march if city officials didn't stop it. "I'm sure that love will win".

Istanbul's governor in 2015 banned Pride-related events. "Now is a time for resistance and resilience", said James Esseks, director of the ACLU's LGBT & HIV Project. On June 28, 1969, violent demonstrations broke out between LGBTQ patrons of the Stonewall Inn and police who attempted to raid the bar.

Some were quick to point the finger at Gulenists, followers of the US-based Muslim preacher Fethullah Gulen whom the authorities accuse of being behind last July's coup attempt. Among the detainees was Bram Janssen, a photo journalist for the Associated Press. It also used plastic bullets and tear gas to disperse the groups that were gathered on sidewalks around the area.

The LGBT organizers denounced the ban, while vowing to go ahead with the march as planned. It also said a valid parade application had not been filed for Sunday's event, a claim rejected by organizers.

City Hall will also be lit up with rainbow lighting from Friday night through Sunday night, and rainbow flags will fly outside, the mayor's office said.

And that hole will not be filled just because the prime minister, premier and mayor will be there.
