What a fantastic day at #PrideTO yesterday!@_elizabeth.may & @mikeschreinergpo were such champs running around giving the crowd high fives & hugs for the entire parade! So proud to march with such an incredible group of people.
Proudly running through the 6ix with you 🏳️🌈♥️ #prideTO
Brought my sister along to help celebrate the 22-year phase I seem to be in? 👭👫 I am proud to be a lot of things, but mostly, this weekend I remembered why I am so proud to be Canadian. #prideTO
PS yes that sign behind me does say "kilt sale" and yes I wish I investigated but I got distracted by a nearby ice cream truck. (📸 @dperlmu)

This Tuesday evening (Nov. 14) at 5:45 pm, join us for an exclusive showing @innistownhall of three fascinating short films by Sonya Reynolds & Lauren Hortie, which delve into the lives and stories of Toronto’s pioneering LGBTQ city-builders:
Whatever Happened to Jackie Shane? An American-born, Toronto-based, black, cross-dressing singer who performed with Etta James and shared a bill with Jimi Hendrix disappears in 1963.
Midnight at the Continental The story of how one of Toronto’s first lesbian bars became an integral part of Toronto’s early Chinatown community.
Meet Me Under the Clock A little-known Halloween tradition pits Toronto’s largely unseen gay community against a distrustful and sometimes aggressive public.
This unique and illuminating screening event will also include:
* A short panel discussion featuring alumni and academic experts
* A chance to meet and greet alumni, students and panelists at a post-screening reception featuring light refreshments and hors d'oeuvres
