NEW YORK/SAN FRANCISCO Large crowds turned out for Pride marches on Sunday in New York City and San Francisco, the two US places most associated with the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights movement, with the East Coast city bringing a more political flavour to the event sparked by events there nearly 50 years ago.
"This ban is in violation not only of the legal precedents of the European Court of Human Rights but also of global treaties, legislations in the domestic law and the Constitution", the LGBTI Pride organizing committee said in a statement. The annual march, which started at 36th Street and Fifth Avenue, ends in the West Village.
Protesters held signs that read "No KKKops, make pride revolutionary again!" and "No pride for some of us without liberation for all of us", the paper reports.
Police fired rubber bullets to disperse one group, witnesses said, and detained several people.
Ozlen said organizers have confirmed that at least 23 people were arrested while trying to gather for Pride-it's unclear if they were charged with any specific crime.
"I didn't know what magic was in that sign", she told CNN.
The 2014 pride march in Istanbul attracted up to 100,000 people, one of the largest LGBTI pride events in the Muslim world.

The second phase of the Cable Car was made operational in 2005. "That's a laid down SOP (standard operating procedure)". According to reports, strong winds uprooted a pine tree that hit the Gondola, thus breaking the cable.
Another young protester, who gave her name as Irem, said: "What bothers the government is the visibility of the LGBT community".
Meow said the theme fits in with San Francisco's legacy as a city of activists.
The governor also said the proper permissions were not granted to the Pride marchers.
The Istanbul governor's office on Saturday banned the event - for the third year in a row - citing safety and public order fears.

Homosexuality has been legal in Turkey throughout the period of the modern republic but gays in Turkey regularly complain of harassment and abuse. "Our security will be provided by recognizing us in the constitution, by securing justice, by equality and freedom". "In my opinion, the pressure is good - it has us talking". Earlier this month, the city unveiled a new flag meant to be a more inclusive reflection of gay pride, with a black and brown stripe added to the existing rainbow motif.
