Whether you are a Toronto native, or just visiting for the week, you absolutely cannot miss Pride Week. This city has one of the best Pride celebrations in the WORLD! So no matter where your preferences lie, you will have an unforgettable time.
Pride is a celebration of our many sexual identities, and I’ve always felt that it is a celebration of love and happiness too. Everyone comes together to dress up, dance in the streets, and support each other. Anyone can feel welcome at Pride, because everyone belongs!
There are many events during the week, which runs this year from June 19- 28. You can attend more thought-provoking and solemn events such as the Human Rights Conference, and AIDS Candlelight Vigil.
Most people attend the popular parades: the Dyke March, Trans March, and Pride Parade.
This year’s Pride is set to be the largest ever Trans celebration in 2015!

Here is a picture of some friends and me a couple years ago, when we jumped over the barriers and hopped in to the Pride Parade. See the look on my face? Pure JOY! One day I’d love to walk in the Pride Parade, with one of the floats, instead of just crashing the party!
