SHOW YOUR PRIDE
As Pride festivities kick into gear, who can resist the urge to party? This year we’ve made tons of gains – gay-straight alliances got their political due, the Ontario Legislature enshrined human rights for trans people (with Manitoba following suit), and the mayor even showed up at the rainbow-flag-raising ceremony to mark the International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
NOW’s glossy Pride preview sets the stage for a huge celebration. Start with listings surveying all of 2012’s Pride-related events, whether official or those spinoffs taking place all over town. Laugh out loud with funnyman Gavin Crawford, interviewed here, who headlines this year’s edition of Bitch Salad. And check out our tips for the best music events through Pride weekend.
What to wear? We feature some of the year’s best rainbow styles, and fashionistas offer tips on dos and don’ts.
And you’ve gotta eat – and drink, right? See our full slate of Pride bars and restos along the parade route.
Plus, Queer Quips, of course – commentary from some of Pride’s most intriguing personalities.
Be proud and party on!
