Although Toronto’s rotund mayor, Rob Ford, decided to skip Toronto Pride this year (renewing concerns that our mayor is homophobic), Toronto pulled out all the stops and had another brilliant Pride Weekend.
It started on Saturday with the Pride and Remembrance 5K in which your humble blogger partook – and did pretty well even in the 90 degree heat (see my last post “So I Ran This 5K Today“). After the run the Husband and I met up with my beautiful niece, Crystal, and her girlfriend for great lunch at Cora’s.
It was my niece’s first Pride.
On Sunday I marched in the Pride Parade with members of the Toronto area Liberal party including the Federal Liberal Leader, Bob Rae and the Liberal MPP for Toronto Centre, Glen Murray.
As usual, the weather was beautiful all Pride Weekend (I don’t believe in god but if I did I’d have to say that she must love the gays) and the parade was as colourful and joyful as ever… even without our mayor.
