These first photos were taken by my cousin who we met up with later along with her partner. They got there early to get good spots along the parade route.
Justin Trudeau is the first Canadian prime minister to march in a pride parade. He was joined by Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne and Toronto Mayor John Tory.
“Canada is united in its defence of rights and in standing up for LGBTQ rights; this is what we are truly celebrating today,” Trudeau said after raising the rainbow flag on Parliament Hill on June 1 to kick off Pride Month.
My cousin got this amazing shot of him.
John and I wandered up and down Church St. enjoying the sights and soaking up the festive atmosphere. I will only post photos with a G content, suitable for all.
The view when we arrived, not too busy as most people were over on Yonge St. watching the parade.
Rainbows were everywhere!
Lots of food booths.
Toronto's Finest were in the spirit as they kept an eye on things.
It wouldn't be Canada, eh, without poutine.
As the crowds began to swell we thought we should snag a table on a patio for the four of us.
Time to head home as the crowds are really getting big now, it's around 7PM.
On Yonge St. they are just getting ready to open up to traffic.
