Trans* Pride is a volunteer team working within Pride Toronto whose goal is to promote trans* education and awareness within Pride Toronto events and beyond. The team oversees the Trans* Pride Community Fair, Trans* Pride Rally and March, and Trans* Space.
Trans* Pride Community Fair
A safer space for trans* community members to find each other during the Pride Toronto festival and access groups, services, and organizations that are specific to trans* communities. A project of the Trans* Pride Team in collaboration with other trans* community groups, every aspect of the event’s management is organized by members of trans* communities.
Trans* Pride March
The Trans* Pride March is one of the largest annual events of the trans* community in Canada. Since its community-led beginnings in 2009, the March has sought to provide a place for trans* identified people to rally, stand up and come together in solidarity. All trans* identified people, their friends and allies are welcome to march.
Trans* Space provides information, activities, and resources to trans* identitified people and their friends and allies. A safe, inclusive, informative and non-judgemental environment located in the heart of the Pride Toronto festival, Trans* Space brings workshops and support to members of the Trans* community, to those who are questioning, and the simply curious.

It includes, but is not limited to, those community members who identify as transgender, transsexual, intersex, third gender, two-spirit, genderqueer, genderfluid, gender independent, transvestite, non-binary,and bigender.
