WorldPride 2014: The Best Photos From This Year's Celebration

This year's WorldPride festival in Toronto was expected to be the biggest Pride ever, and it didn't disappoint. Pride Toronto co-chair Sean Hillier told the Canadian Press a record number of groups registered to be part of the festivities this year, and that the streets were "overflowing" at events.

But, as every year, Pride is way more than the parade. There was a beautiful mass wedding at Casa Loma, the dyke march on Saturday, an outdoor church service, and endless dance parties.

Here are some of the best photos we've found of this year's festival.
