    World Pride parade is on Sunday, June 29th at 1 pm. (You don't list the date.) It begins at Church and Bloor and heads east to Yonge, goes south to Dundas.

    Utterly disgusting, revolting and shameful.

      @kenfromcanada Not to be rude KENFROMCANADA, but since when did the pendulum swing so far the other way, that if those who are against the parade (like MARK7), that such people are seen as hateful.
      Playing devil's advocate here, isn't that what this "celebration" is all about- being open to everyone's view on life and morality- and all that it entails; as long as its not harmful to others.

      People should have the right to disagree with what's going on downtown, and not be demonized for it.

    Whether u are straight as a pipe or kinky as a fun straw there is a not doubt that PRIDE is good for the economy and long after the show is over the money remains.
