Major Cultural Partners 2023

The Major Cultural Event Programs stand as an exclusive invite-only initiative tailored for distinguished Cultural institutions and historical sites in Toronto. Through strategic partnerships with Major Cultural Organizations, this program reinforces each institution’s unwavering commitment to supporting the 2SLGBTQI+ community, thereby diversifying the range of events available throughout the month of June—acknowledged as Pride Month and extending from May to July. These events, whether community-based or commercial, are meticulously curated to benefit the communities we serve while adhering to Pride Toronto’s mission, vision, and values. The alignment with these core principles reflects a collective dedication to promoting diversity, representation, and inclusion.

Highlighted below are the notable partners and events that collaborated with Pride Toronto in 2023.
