Separate LGBT+ pride marches in the US were disrupted on Saturday, one by a stampede triggered over fears of a shooting and another by one of America’s biggest neo-Nazi groups. In Washington DC, seven people were taken to hospital after fears of a potential gunman at the pride event sparked panic. Hundreds of people were gathered at the Dupont Circle for the parade when people started running after hearing what they thought was a gunshot. In Detroit, an armed white supremacist group called the National Socialist Movement (NSM) descended on the annual Motor City Pride Festival, where they held placards, gave Nazi salutes and displayed armbands with swastikas.
