The WorldPride events in Toronto will culminate in the massive parade taking place on June 29, 2014, starting at 1 p.m.

Marking 34 years of the Pride Parade in Toronto, the celebration of the LGBTTIQQ2SA communities starts at the corner of Church and Bloor Streets, and walk (or dance) down Yonge Street to Dundas Square.

According to WorldPride, the number of people and companies who wanted to have floats (as of this count, 275 groups were signed up) means the parade needs to start an hour early, so expect even more of, well, everything.

In fact, that's mainly the point behind WorldPride in Toronto this year, as it brings together international communities to showcase diversity, education and activism from around the world.

"The heart of the celebration of WorldPride is a human rights conference at the University of Toronto, June 25 through 27," executive director Kevin Beaulieu told Living Toronto. "It’s founded in the ongoing struggle here and around the world. It will bring activists and thinkers from over fifty countries around the world."

Other events include everything from a mass gay wedding on June 26 to a multitude of dance parties, each and every day.

Meanwhile, those gorgeous rainbow crosswalks promise to remain a permanent fixture in the city.
