Pride Toronto 2013
For 10 days, Toronto celebrates its creativity and
diversity, especially where gender identity is concerned. Pride Week is packed
with an exciting line-up of events including the Trans March, the Dyke March,
and of course the Pride Parade.
Those are the main events, but there’s plenty going on in between. The 3-day
street festival is a lot of fun under the Toronto sun with 8 stages of live
music and entertainment, food stalls, and booths sponsored by community
organization and vendors. The Street Fair is June 28 to 30, and takes place in
Church and Wellesley Village. Family Pride at Church
Street Public School will have a special program just for children and
families. Last year, Family Pride included kid-friendly entertainment such as
music, puppet shows, and drum circles. This time, expect all of that plus story
time, games, face painting, activities, and crafts.
For those who want to show their Pride while staying sober, Toronto Pride Week
provides a space that is substance free—Clean, Sober, & Proud. Here,
participants can enjoy musical entertainment, confidential recovery meetings,
and holistic services. This area is also family-friendly.
