Pride, Toronto, ON

It's Pride Week here in Toronto.

I've lived in Toronto for 21 years and have never been. Neither has Gord. So we went tonight.

We saw the end of Skin Tight Outta Sight, a burlesque troupe.





There was lots of stuff sold in booths ... like this one:



There were lots of people walking up and down Church Street.




We had a beer at Statlers. There's Gord!

These guys were dancing on the balcony above Statlers. They drew quite a crowd!




We had a beer at a beer garden that was cranking techno music. The security guard asked us for our IDs ... I hugged her!



Would I go back to Pride again? Probably not. The bars had line-ups. I was expecting the bars to have their patios extended onto the street like the Taste of Little Italy a couple weeks ago. Church Street is closed to cars from Bloor E to Carlton so there's no reason why they couldn't.

To be honest I never understood pride week. I have no problem with gays but I do have a problem with pride week.
