Melissa Etheridge and Deborah Cox Rock the World Pride Toronto Opening Ceremonies

World Pride Toronto celebrations started with star-studded Opening Ceremonies at Nathan Phillips Square where thousands came to jam with the proud and out and Grammy-winning country singer Melissa Etheridge who never failed to keep everyone on their feet. Multi-platinum pop sensation Deborah Cox did show-stopper numbers in a makeshift, floating stage. All-American Boy Steve Grand made the gays drool like there’s no tomorrow.
