Pride Toronto released a statement today announcing the plans for Pride Month, including Virtual Pride, kicking off June 1st with the raising of the Rainbow and Transgender Pride flags. Virtual Pride will include virtual parties all month long and end off with a Virtual Pride Parade.
“Celebrating Pride has always been a protest of resilience and that shouldn’t change. The queer and trans community will continue to trail-blaze and connect our community with innovative and exciting ideas. COVID-19 won’t stop us from continuing to create space for everyone to express who they truly are.”
“The Virtual Pride Parade will stay true to our political roots and reflect our community. We will honour our courageous past, celebrating how far we have come and will remain vigilant to the ongoing needs of our community. We will help bring issues to light, challenge convention, support our community, and promote safety.”
