    I'm going to my first pride in Ottawa icon_cool.gif which is close enough I guess to Toronto.

    Are they still doing a parade in Ottawa? They only started doing a parade the last 2 years I lived there, it would be nice to hear that it's still going on and growing.

    If Spain makes it to the Finals of EuroCup I DEF will be partying with my Spaniards on Sunday. Pride doesn't really do it for me.

    Sorry to here that MunchingZombie, I would have liked to meet for drinks, maybe next year.

    Pride is coming to me as usual. I live very close to the community and can watch the parade from my building's rooftop if I wanted to. My partner and I will probably go out on Friday and Saturday nights and walk Church St. and watch the parade on Sunday. The bars and outdoor dance areas are usually too busy to enjoy.

    I will keep an eye out for you Sean85, hopefully I won't step on you! The streets are crazy during pride weekend.

    streets are crazy is an understatement... I wore sandals to my first pride and almost lost my toes... now I know better!

    Hopefully the rainy weather will stay away, the forecast isn't looking good so far.

    Looks like the Lesbians are going to get the short end of the stick yet again. Thunderstorms are forecasted for Saturday when the dyke parade takes place.

    Toronto pride is so much more popular then it was when I first went in 1987. Far more heteros then there used to be on Church Street. That is great, I just wish they would leave their baby carriages and dogs at home! It is bad enough trying to negotiate little kids and adults.
