World Pride Parade Toronto 2014 celebrations might be over, but I still have my hangover. In fact, I am writing this right now with my head a bit spinning. The poster on my wall motivates me to just go through the day: BE CALM AND CARRY ON.
World Pride Toronto 2014 just had a 10-day celebration with more than 500 events (including affiliated events) all over the city. With 2 million people expected to attend, the city was covered with everything but rainbows. From hotel lobbies to the streets, rainbow flags were ubiquitous. And oh, the parties were unbelievably wicked and faaaaabulous! Shirtless and naked boys and girls were strutting around the Gay Village like it’s the most natural thing to do in Pride Week. Or everyday.
Toronto is the first city in the Americas to host WorldPride.
WorldPride Parade is a showcase of politics, pomp, pageantry, social issues, sexual freedoms and everything in between.
We have Gay Pride because we are “Gay by birth, fabulous by choice!” 😀
We have Gay Pride so we can march for those who can’t.
We have Gay Pride because it’s a crime to be gay in over 80 countries in the world.
We have Gay Pride to get rid of homophobia, intolerance, racism and other forms of hate.
We have Gay Pride to celebrate diversity.
We have Gay Pride to celebrate love—in all forms.
At WorldPride, we celebrate for who you are and for many more reasons.
The crowd at WorldPride 2014 braved the searing heat, exhaustion and even suffocation in some viewing areas.
Can you see your country’s flag at the Parade of Nations?

And women, too.
WorldPride Parade had more than 12 thousand people participating in.
Two thousand volunteers were working across all venues, in more than 500 events in a 10-day druration.
