RuPaul's "Supermodel" is THE BEST.
“This is the year for Surrey coming alive with LGBTQ community."
Toronto Pride has come so far!
Trudeau will also attend parades this month.
“We hope to bring awareness and attention to meaningful conversations and engage social actions."
Toronto and pride have a long relationship, and while today it’s largely one of excitement and inclusion, that wasn't always the case. The first unofficial Pride Week in Toronto took place in 1972 and...
When the Pride Society, one of the most influential activist organizations in Vancouver's prosperous and politically active gay community, comes knocking, Vision Vancouver, the current rulers at city hall, and the NPA, the loyal opposition, bow down. And when a trumped up "report" goes to council claiming attendance figures so outrageous they deserve their own float in the parade, nobody bats an eye. If a parade eclipses the 400,000 attendee threshold, it qualifies for the maximum amount of money available to civic parades. The Sikhs and the Chinese didn't come close. But according to the Dobrovolny report, the Pride Parade attracts "crowds close to half a million people." Cha-ching.
This past weekend I took my three-year-old-son to Toronto's Pride Parade. It was his second year, because kids love parades, rainbows and fairness. Because the way we move forward is teaching our children to not have ingrained prejudices at all.
Every year in the fair city of Toronto, you’ll notice a sudden spike in exposed washboard abs, pelvic muscles over low hanging jeans, faux hawks and dominatrix-clad men and women. No, it’s not the XX...
My name is Donald. I am a gay Canadian. But I can talk about subjects that aren't "gay" and for the most part I do. Don't assume all homosexuals are alike or like the same things. And just because you know a homosexual or two doesn't mean you "know" us or me.

Another Canada Day, another successful Pride Parade along the streets of downtown Toronto. As in previous years one of the largest parades of its kind saw hundreds of thousands of people lining the streets. The Parade itself covers less than a mile or two of Toronto's streets but the geography is far less important than the message it sends. It was only 30 years ago this February that Toronto Police raided the city's gay bathhouses, arresting more than 300 innocent men.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford will likely be doing a few things this weekend, enjoying the outdoors at the cottage, barbecuing with his family, maybe even enjoying Canada Day fireworks. One thing that the ma...
Woody Allen once said that 80 per cent of success is 'just showing up'. Understanding that in every encounter you may actually learn something is a key to achieving better public policy. So, Mayor Ford -- you belong at Pride.
The only banner I have seen from the Dyke March is one that said "Free Palestine". Do we really want to spend legal fees chasing this one? I suggest we'll spend at least $300,000 trying to prove that there was hate speech at this event.
CBC — A Toronto weekly news magazine is offering to fly Mayor Rob Ford in from the cottage so he can attend Sunday's Pride Parade. Last week when asked whether he would attend the parade, Ford decline...
Rob Ford’s decision not to march in the Pride Parade is stupid, as I’ve already argued. It is disrespectful to queer people in Toronto, and as mayor his disrespect carries symbolic weight—he is being...
The chins are wagging,and tongues are flapping about the Mayor's decision to continue with his 30-year family tradition of spending Canada's birthday at his cottage with his family.
