Rob Ford Photos At Gay Rights Events Are Worth 1,000 Words

Rob Ford broke his nearly three-year-long embargo on attending Pride events Monday, but a photo from the event suggests how he really felt about being there.

A photo of a glum Ford standing alone at the Pride flag-raising ceremony stitched together with a nearly identical photo of Toronto's mayor at another gay rights flag-raising event earlier this year is going viral on social media. The first photo was taken by NOW Magazine's Jonathan Goldsbie and the second by Xtra Canada journalist Andrea Houston.

Twitter was quick to pick up on the symbolism of the image.
