Wearing a t-shirt reading 'Y'all means ALL,' former Mayor Julian Castro exchanged handshakes and high fives with the large crowd at San Antonio's annual Pride Parade Saturday night, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The Presidential candidate was a regular at the parade as Mayor, twice serving as grand marshal.
Castro pointed out that San Antonio's Pride event is bigger than Los Angeles.
"It feels good to live in a community that believes in equality," Castro said.
This year's parade and 'Pride Bigger than Texas' rally at Crockett Park marked 50 years since the Stonewall Riots in New York City, which are considered the birth of the LGBTQ rights movement in the United States.
Castro was in Texas for several rallies, as he attempts to build on his strong performance in last week's Democrat Presidential debates.
