Well this summer, that all changes and this Sunday we're gonna make some noise, Whether you are gay-straight -curious, as long as you are a Human Being that wants to embrace and enjoy life, this Sunday is your shot.


The Importance Of Equality

(why are we here this weekend ?)

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Pride Month (LGBT Pride Month) is celebrated annually in June to honor the 1969 Stonewall riots and work to achieve equal justice and equal opportunity for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ). In June of 1969, patrons and supporters of the Stonewall Inn in New York City staged an uprising to resist the police harassment and persecution to which LGBT Americans were commonly subjected. This uprising marks the beginning of a movement to outlaw discriminatory laws and practices against LGBT Americans.


Today, celebrations include pride parades, picnics, parties, workshops, symposia and concerts, and LGBT Pride Month events attract millions of participants around the world. Memorials are held during this month for those members of the community who have been lost to hate crimes or HIV/AIDS. The purpose of the commemorative month is to recognize the impact that LGBTQ individuals have had on history locally, nationally, and internationally.


Federal and local policies and practices are increasingly acknowledging and focusing on LGBTQ youth and numerous national advocacy and other organizations are also giving greater attention to LGBTQ youth in their work. Encouraging greater acceptance and support for all youth, including those who are or are perceived to be LGBTQ, will make communities, schools, and other settings safer, and better places for all youth

& today , Sunday, is the big rap-up Gender bender.

Here is everything you need to know.......

Is This Your First? What To Bring


If this is your first ever Pride, here are a few notes to keep in mind.

Regarding the festival weekend, come as you feel comfortable! Note that Toronto will be loud, crowded, and there will be naked people.

Whether you’re a Pride newcomer or a Pride veteran, here is a helpful checklist to review before the festivities be


Bring a water bottle and snacks Safely prepare for hot weather and a long day. Bring a refillable water bottle to stay hydrated, and snacks to refuel as you walk around the city.


Follow the Buddy system Make a group chat to organize and finalize plans. Pride is more fun with your community! If you do not have friends who can attend events with you, join us!


Set up a meeting spot There will be a lot of people attending Pride festivities in the city, so be sure to set a meeting point with your friends in case you end up separating from each other. Consider sharing your location and keep in mind it may drain your battery, which takes us to our next point.


Fully charged phone and portable charger From snapping pictures and videos to overheating, be prepared for your phone to die. Bisexuals with their phone at 2% buried in the bottom of a tote bag, this advice especially applies to you.


Cash (to buy fun stuff from vendors) There will be many awesome vendors to support! Not all vendors have debit machines, so be sure to have some cash on your person if you’re looking to buy anything. From art, jewellery, snacks, and more, there’s a lot to see at the Youth Market.


Sunglasses, a hat, and sunscreen It might seem obvious, but also quite easy to forget. Remember these three items and thank yourself later. You will need to re-apply SPF if you are out all day too!


Sensory regulation tools – and check out Pride’s accessibility resources Calling all neurodiversity folks! Feel encouraged to bring any sensory regulation tools that will better your experience at pride. Consider an anxiety ring, ear plugs, soundproof headphones, or checking out the accessibility hub. Closed captioning will be available for all events!


Film camera or disposable camera if it’s your aesthetic It would also save your phone some battery to have a camera alternative. You can also simply edit your phone pictures to look like a 90’s film pic – no shame!


Pride swag: your flag, accessories, glitter, however you would like to present Put together your flashiest fit or arrive in your everyday clothing. It does not matter what you wear, just that you feel like you in welcoming and diverse 2SLGBTQIA+community, you will shine no matter what.


Name and pronouns tag if you’re looking to make friends What better time to socialize with new folks than at an event filled with other Queer people! After two years of virtual Pride and isolation, we are finally back to building community together. Pride Toronto ensures that Pride Month and Festival Weekend will be organized safely, in alignment with the City’s Public Health recommendations.


In Short:

Pride Month and celebrations aren’t just about watching drag queens throw t-shirts from a float or buying items with a rainbow on them. Pride matters for many reasons beyond this.


The first reason why Pride matters is because everybody should feel comfortable and safe being themselves wherever they are, whatever they identify themselves as, with whoever they are with. Its not a "Dare to be different" its your right to be different.

If everyone was the same this fucking neighborhood we call earth would be god awfully boring as hell.


If you believe in these basic but so important principles, this is the day to show support, be yourself, and come as you are.


(If you are curious or have friends or family members in the community and trying to get your head around it, no better way to explain things around here , than in song)


Happy Pride Toronto

Wishing you a safe celebration full of good juju

Anthony
