Toronto has one of the biggest LGBTQ Pride parades, and in 2014, it was Canada’s turn to host the International World Pride festival. So many organizations marched in support: school districts, companies, non-profits, unions, even the police department. And so many countries around the globe represented. An estimated 2 million people were there, sharing support and joy and friendship with each other, whatever their persuasion, participants and spectators alike.
I joined in the parade with my brother’s union. Our group came right after the gay Jamaicans; their music was our backbeat of the day! As I usually do for these types of events, I wandered up and down the stretch of the march to photograph and get a feeling for the breadth of the event. A wonderful celebration!
