Weekend Bants



This weekend sees the opening of World Pride Week. What better place to celebrate than in a city with one of the largest LGBTQ communities in the world? Join in as Toronto becomes the first North American city ever to host this ultimate celebration of Pride.

World Pride is a 10 day celebration of Gay culture, which sees Toronto’s historic Gay Village become a pedestrian-only party zone filled with music, bustling crowds, vibrant costumes, and of course plenty of guys and gals. Many bars are open until 4am or later so you can keep the party going all night long.
