We are excited to be commemorating our 40th Anniversary by sharing our story through digital content and by showcasing our heroes, our Elders, of the Toronto Queer and Trans communities.
Over a year into the COVID-19 pandemic, communities across Toronto, especially racialized and marginalized communities, are frustrated, exhausted, and anxious about their future. However, this year has also highlighted their sacrifices and resiliency in the face of great challenges.
The 2SLGBTQ+ communities continue to be among the most vulnerable in Canada and hardest hit during the COVID-19 pandemic. Facing significant discrimination in all areas of life, barriers to accessing healthcare and mental health services, and higher rates of homelessness, poverty, and social isolation — one thing is evident, our community needs ongoing support now more than ever.
Pride Toronto is supporting this work by prioritizing community-focused programming, amplifying local advocacy, and elevating the most marginalized voices in our community.
We are thankful for the ongoing work, commitment, and support of staff, volunteers, members, sponsors, and the 2SLGBTQ+ community. We look forward to celebrating the 2021 Pride Toronto Festival and our 40th Anniversary with you!
