Gay Pride Parade Tips (7)

Gay Village walk....(Pride Weekend too)

Toronto's gay district is a thriving community of shops, cafes, pubs, clubs, restaurants and everything in between. Generally the village starts just south of Bloor street and goes down to Carlton - all centred around Church Street.

Places I like: Woody's (bar), Churchmouse & Firkin (pub), Cafe California (bar/restaurant)

Pride weekend in Toronto is the last week of June. Over one million people line the parade route which is held on the Sunday of the weekend as an end to a fun filled weekend. Church Street is closed off to vehicular traffic for the whole weekend and is a great time to people watch, grab a drink and hang out with friends.

The Gay Pride Parades

Toronto has become very famous for its rather rowdy Gay Pride parades. They are usually held during the last weekend of June and proceed up and down Yonge and Church Streets. The floats are to say the least, colourful and bawdy sometime to the extreme. You might ask yourself, if you are are "straight" is this for you to attend. Well I am straight I have seen it several times and most of the people watching from the street side tend to be straight curiosity seekers. The picture you see here is actually of the Lesbian Pride parade that is held on the Saturday of that weekend. The Men's parade is usually held on the Sunday.
The reason the parade is so popular is that Toronto has an enormous gay population. Supposedly Toronto proportional gay population is third highest in the world, after only San Fransisco and Amsterdam.

Toronto Gay Pride Parade

Once a year Toronto's large gay community holds gay pride week. With around a million atendance it is one of the largest. The highlight is the Sunday Parade. Definitely a colorful Fun event not to be missed regardless of personal sexual orientation!

Warning there is nudity and costumes of a type that might be difficult to explain to your children. I saw several mothers shielding their children's eyes.

Toronto Gay Pride Parade!! 20 June- 26 2005

The funniest festival I have ever seen in my life. The gay pride is a common festival in Toronto. Thousands of people around North America visit Toronto for this day every year.
Thousands of people walk downtown with extraoriginal costumes, by cabrio cars and motorcyles. People dance on streets, kiss, hug and a huge festival for such a minority in the society. Believe it or not, everybody tell this in Toronto that Canada or Toronto has a big gay population among other North American cities. Now here is some more info about the pride which I copied from a website>>>>>>>
Pride Toronto is the not-for-profit organization that hosts Pride Week, an annual event in downtown Toronto that happens each year during the last week of June.

Pride Week is one of only eight officially designated City of Toronto “Signature Events”, and in 2004 was designated one of the "Top 50 Festivals in Ontario" (FEO).

Pride Week celebrates our diverse sexual and gender identities, histories, cultures, creativities, families, friends and lives. It includes a participatory, week long festival, a three-day arts fest with over ten entertainment stages, a weekend street fair (including a community fair and market place), a Dyke March and a Pride Parade.

Pride Toronto employs four full time staff and we rely on the leadership and energy of literally hundreds of volunteers to make this enormous event happen each year.

In 2003, the Toronto Star estimated more than one million people attended the annual Pride Parade, making Pride Week in Toronto one of the largest events of it’s kind in the world.

Gay Pride - with almost a...

Gay Pride - with almost a million people dancing in the streets there is something for everyone. Usually held the last weekend in June. This event is one of the safest in the city. From local talent to international dj's to meeting people from all over the world. If you here during that time you need to check out this event....
The parade alone is colourful and full of excitment. With all kinds of people - families, senior couples, drag queens/kings and anyone else you can imagine being there. There is so much to see and do - with a street fair with stores, food and information regading the culture of the gay community all at your finger tips. Plus don't forget the major parties that are going on around the city during the whole week!

The Gay Pride Parade is held in Toronto on during the end of June. Although it's not as great as the one in New York during Halloween, it's still worth visiting.

Even if you're not in town during the parade, if you have time (and it's warm outside), go hang out on Church St. (in the area just north of Ryerson University) - you'll have fun.
