Pride Toronto – Street Photography
Pride Toronto is an annual event held in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, in June each year. A celebration of the diversity of the LGBT community in the Greater Toronto Area. It is one of the largest organized gay pride festivals in the world, featuring several stages with live performers and DJs, several licensed venues, a large Dyke March, a Trans March and the Pride Parade.

“Jesus wanted us to be loving and forgiving.” – Elton John
The parade is worth watching, but you will have to compete with 100,000 people for a good view.
For a much closer look, away from the crowds, arrive earlier, before the parade starts. The parade’s starting point is around Bloor Street East and Church Street area. Or just take an afternoon leisurely walk in the Church and Wellesley village during the Pride Week. You will be surprised!
The photos have been taken with the Ricoh GR camera.
