Happy Pride Day Toronto !

Happy Pride Day Toronto ! I've been searching flickr and blogs for photos and blog posts on the Dyke March and Pride parade and it looks like a great day was had by all and the weather was fine.

Pride Toronto's 27th annual celebration climaxed Sunday with a vibrant Pride Parade.

Music, marchers and dancers flowed through the crowded downtown core, embodying the festival's 2007 theme -- "unstoppable"

An estimated 500,000 people spent the day watching a rainbow of 150 floats and bands go by.

The parade, which went from 2 to 6 p.m., was the culmination of a week honouring diverse sexual and gender identities, histories and cultures.

The celebration draws approximately one million people, and generates almost $100 million for the region.

The Dyke March, the largest women's event of its kind in Canada, also took over the streets on Saturday from 2 to 4 p.m.

The city's 12th annual march of women and transsexual people was a political demonstration, set apart from the parade to highlight the dominance of males as symbols of the gay community.
Looking forward to Ottawa Pride events in August
