Toronto shows its pride

The pride parade weaved through the city on Sunday

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.

    funney thing about that is this

    when gay marriage was not allowed u they could easily get out of a relationship by just walking away .

    now with gay marriage if u wanna separate u have to go through the same shit us str8 people have to go through. talk about irony .


    as for the parade i agree . i dont wanna see dudes walking around with there junk hanging out . maybe donny p but not me . u will never see me there . i dont care if someone is gay as long as they leave me out of it . i will NEVER swing that way i dont care if i live in a world where there is no women . i would rather die alone . then bang a guy .
