PHOTOS: WorldPride in Toronto — The Grandest of Them All


By contributor

Over 12,000 marchers from all over the globe made this the most spectacular World Pride ever.

The pictures tell the story: a day full of pride and joy and support. Toronto is the fourth city to host a WorldPride festival since they started in 2000. Events have also been held in Rome, Jerusalem, and London.

Thanks to Alain Sojourner for many of the photos here.

So hot that hunky firemen needed to cool down the crowd. Squirt me! Squirt me!

An enormous crowd filled the streets to capacity.

Hold on to that rail, boys, this float's picking up speed.
