    Hey all, so I'm interested in going to Toronto Pride this summer (the "main weekend" is July 2nd and 3rd). But I have no one to go with and was thinking about going alone.

    Has anyone ever gone to a Pride event alone? Would you recommend it? Even if you haven't, would you think it's fine to go alone to one?

    I was hoping to go and meet people but I don't know if it's the best environment for that, considering most people are probably going with friends. I've never been to a Pride event before.

    I figure worst case scenario, I'll just walk around drinking all day enjoying the sights and then go to gay nightclubs in the evening and dance the night away by myself, which also sounds fun. icon_razz.gif I also live three hours away so I'd have to get a hotel.

    Thoughts?

    I've done that alone, not once but many times. Of course, it'll be nice to get some friends to share the fun but if that's not possible, then do it any way alone.

    My one and only gay pride that I have attended is Toronto pride. You will be surprised how many friendly souls you will meet. It is very crowded, you barely have space to put your foot.

    Yeah hoping to meet at least SOME people...

    Need to work on getting a hotel, if they're not all booked already. I also need to figure out WHERE to get a hotel, preferably close to clubs because I'm definitely not driving that night haha. Can't wait! icon_smile.gif
