    Hee hee it is Gay Disney Weekend here in Orlando but I couldn't care less because this year I am going to Gay Pride Toronto and I am so excited!

    Anyone else going? I mean, I know you guys from Toronto but I was just wondering if others have gone, had thoughts, suggestions, etc.

    Can't wait!

    Lucky You!
    Toronto pride is Awesome, I'm not going this year but have been several times in the past and always have a blast. So many events going on and if you need a break from the Gayness you're in the heart of Toronto ( which is a pretty cool city on it's own )

    Have a Great Time. icon_biggrin.gif

    Well I'll be there, but I live here, hehe. Still, it'll be my first Pride! (I'm newly "out"). I'm actually involved in the University of Toronto's Pride Committee, so part of my week will involve helping them out, at the community fair for instance, and at the Parade of course =). I'm also hoping to do the 5k Pride Run (my first race ever!!). And of course, random hot sexy parties, haha. Should be fun!

    oh I'll be there - Toronto Pride is what caused me to come out - after spending the day there I was like "yeah...definitely gay"

    hahaha

    Just remember, if you're going clubbing at all...if you're not in a place by 8 pm you're not getting in

    I've been there.... actually the only large city Pride celebration I've ever seen.
    It was 6 years ago... still was pretty inexperienced about seeing such things.. and I'll never forget some of the comments made to me by others
    there... it was quite the experience....LOL

    be surrrreeee to go to the street fair, the entire village's road are closed and it becomes one big massive fair/party it's amazing with a lot of stuff to do. it's basically what made pride all fun for me even better than the parties/clubs

    Never been to toronto pride, but it's a big deal at the GLBT centre at my school. They rent a van, hotel rooms, etc. I'd like to check it out at some point to see what the hype is about, but 'till then I'll be stuck with boring old Ottawa pride.

    what's the best? the big parade? or is there stuff goin on all the time?


    The best is usually mid day Friday church street is closed down and the street starts to get rammed with people.. and then all weekend its closed and its like a street party.. beer gardens and patios full. night time the bars are packed.. line ups like crazy. and everyone just gets wasted and has a good time. We've never gone to too many of the organized events.
