    judgingyou saidMaybe for like 5 seconds just to get out of the apartment and then leave because it's crowded and hot


    I usually do the same every year. Wander into the crowd for about 5 min then decide I just want my space and leave haha.

    Unfortunately, I won't be attending this year. I see plenty of drag on a daily basis.

    Calgary is Toronto's more successful little brother.

    The production company I'm working for is going to be videotaping the trans march and possibly other events. Thus far, that's my only reason for going...

    ...BUT, if someone arranged a RealJock meet-up, I would have another reason to go.

    I live in the heart of it, should be fun!
    Not sure how World Pride can get any busier than regular pride, Church street is insane post parade.

    I'll be there! Live downtown so a lot of the events won't be too far away. Will be my second pride, so looking forward to it. I think a friend from this site is coming down from Montreal too!

    Flying back to Toronto that day, so will miss it completely. But, honestly, I've never been to pride. It was unlikely that I would've attended even if I had the chance to.

    Calgary is very close to becoming Canada's second largest city only Toronto being much larger. I guess Montreal is going to have to live with being number 3 on the list in the very near future.

    By city municipality yes, we're already significantly larger than Vancouver, but by metro area, we're nowhere close to as big as Vancouver or Montreal. The population of Calgary proper is almost identical to the metro area population. Montreal is more than double.

    Montreal is still very slow growth where Calgary is growing very rapidly. I tend to separate the central cities from the metropolitan regions because they are technically separate from each other. Actually Montreal was dropping in population due to a slow economy and the on and off French Canadian antagonisms.



    I would love to come to World Gay Pride in Toronto but finding guys interested in making the trip up the QEW to Toronto is the sticking point. Also having enough money is another obstacle I am currently facing now that I am no longer employed full time. I still would love to experience this one of a kind event.
