The start of June brings in more sun, hotter weather, and longer days that can be filled with fun events to celebrate Pride Toronto. The annual Pride Toronto festival invites us to come together to celebrate the history, courage, and diversity of Toronto’s LGBTQ2+ communities. And so, this year with 50 events packed into 24 days, we want your feet to survive the parties and celebrations from dusk to dawn.
Festivities kick off on Saturday June 1, 2019 with the Freedom Party Ball. This year’s official Pride Month Launch Party was housed in Toronto’s newest Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA). Now if you missed this grand opening, don't worry. Pride is known for it's fierce night life primarily found in The Village (Church Street extending from Isabella to Carlton). All you need is a quick stroll down the street and you'll be sure to find a place.
