Ian McKellen was one of the grand marshals at New York City’s annual Gay Pride Parade on Sunday, and from the looks of things he had a great time doing it.

McKellen shared the honor this year with fellow actor Derek Jacobi, as well as artist J. Christopher Neal and Ugandan activist Kasha Jacqueline Nabagesera.

Wearing all white (plus a tan jacket and that rainbow sash), the 76-year-old McKellen smiled and waved to the crowd as he traveled down the parade route.

This year’s Pride parade came just two days after the Supreme Court’s ruling legalizing same-sex marriage in all 50 states. McKellen and Jacobi celebrated that news on Friday with a confetti-filled Vine video.
