NOW Magazine - Pride - - Events Pride Guide -

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!
