World Pride Parade Toronto 2014 Photos

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.

    Hi,

    I work for CBC Radio, but was visiting Toronto, and did a little video — on my own time. I asked the question to people on the streets… What was the best thing about coming out… and the worst?

    Here’s the link if you want to share it.
