Canadian Treasures Celebrate Toronto Pride

Canadian Treasures Celebrate Toronto Pride

On Sunday, Toronto celebrated Pride Month with it biggest parade yet. According to the Toronto Star, over 235 groups marched in the parade. These groups included some of Canada's greatest treasures: pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, drag superstar Brooke Lynn Hytes, and YouTuber and trans icon Gigi Gorgeous.

The parade proceeded peacefully, with no protests against those celebrating the LGBTQ+ community, and their human rights. This is because of increased security measures after a physical confrontation broke out at the Pride Parade in the city of Hamilton in Ontario.

This is the second parade in one week held on the streets of Toronto. On Monday, the city had a massive celebration in honor of the Raptors' NBA Finals win.
