The word Pride implies the basis for human dignity.
This is what WorldPride means to us. What does WorldPride mean to you?
Check out Visit Toronto For Pride.com to join the celebration and learn more about WorldPride.
WorldPride 2014 is coming to Toronto THIS summer. June 20-29, 2014. And we can’t wait! This international ten-day celebration of global LGBTTIQQ2SA communities will be the first WorldPride ever held in North America, and the fourth such festival in the world.
To prepare for this one-of-a-kind event, we asked trailblazers like Kyle Rae and Laverne Cox — plus the Pride Toronto staff and volunteers on the ground — what WorldPride means to them. Listen to their stories and find out for yourself why Torontonians are so proud to be hosting WP14TO this June.

Toronto Pride 2019: What to Do and Where to Go
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall Riots and the birth of the LGBTQ2+ movement around the world. In 1969, African American trans woman and revolutionary heroine Marsha P Johnson, helped instigate and became a frontline activist in the Stonewall Riots in New York City. In celebration of her life, Pride Month will be dedicated to Drag performers from around the globe sharing their culture and performances while inspiring us to live boldly and passionately. Gigi Gorgeous, a Canadian YouTuber, actress and LGBTQ2+ icon will be this year’s Grand Marshall and make various appearances at the Pride events. Her weekend schedule can be found on the ”Pride website.
