The pride parade was bigger than ever before.

Since Toronto was the host city of World Pride, the march started an hour earlier than past years and included over 10 000 participants.

Brenda was one of the spectators taking it all in. She said she hasn’t missed a parade in the last 30 years.

“It used to be a little party in the park… people weren’t very excited to see us around," she said. "In terms of human rights they’ve really advanced over the years, which is the biggest thing for me.”

The parade started at the intersection of Church and Bloor at 1 p.m.

The parade headed west on Bloor and then south on Yonge Street to end at Dundas Square for the closing ceremonies. The finale to the week of festivities included DJs and live musical performances.
