Essential guide to everything Pride
For T.O.’s queer community – one of the largest and most influential on the planet – Pride is always a very big deal. There’s tons to celebrate this year – for starters, Canada’s first openly gay premier – so the party potential is huge.
NOW’s Pride preview has everything you need to make your plans right through parade day, June 30: listings of all LGBT-related events, official and otherwise; the complete Pride Stage schedule for Pride weekend; Salvatore Antonio and Adamo Ruggiero talking about their popumentary, Truth/Dare: A Satire (With Dance), a riff on Madonna’s infamous documentary and one of Pride’s most hotly anticipated stage events; and tips on who’s spinning at the best bashes.
Don’t forget to eat. We have the goods on all the queer-friendly patios, bars and restos in the gay village and beyond.
The last thing you want to do at a Pride event is commit a fashion faux pas. That’s why we offer style dos and don’ts from savvy fashionistas.
And in our famous Queer Quips feature, Pride performers of all kinds speak their minds on everything from the Rob Ford video to sex ed.
Time to party hard.
