Happy Pride! After everything we’ve been through this past year, we’re still here and still queer! Pride is a time for us to come together as a community: to celebrate our successes, to mourn our losses, to fight for our rights, to be our most authentic selves, and to love and be loved. While we are sad we cannot be together in person, Pride Toronto is proud to bring you our first-ever Virtual Pride!
Virtual Pride is an opportunity to use technology as a platform to showcase the many talents of our diverse LGBT2Q+ community members in new and exciting ways. Through Virtual Pride, we hope to bring a sense of belonging and community to those who need it most during this difficult period. We are excited to continue the numerous creative traditions of Pride in an innovative and personal style. You will be able to experience the performances, passions, and energy of our many amazing artists like never before. The show must go on!
We would like to say a big thank you to our frontline workers. This includes healthcare staff, nurses, doctors, personal support workers, cleaners, cashiers, grocery store employees, couriers, farmers, food suppliers, restaurant workers, and everyone everywhere who has worked so hard to keep things going during these unprecedented times. We would also like to thank our staff, volunteers, sponsors, and most importantly our wonderful community. As we’ve shown again and again, we will get through this together.
Stay Proud. Stay Home. Stay Strong. Stay Safe.
