Society Contingent Joins the Toronto Pride Parade

July 9, 2024

Society members marched exuberantly with the Ontario Federation of Labour in Toronto’s Pride Parade on Sunday, which saw thousands of people assemble in downtown Toronto. The parade, which is one of the largest pride parades across Canada, marked the end of a month of events celebrating the city’s 2SLGBTQI+ community

Pride Toronto, founded in 1981, dates the origins of the Toronto Pride festival back to 1971, when queer activists with the University of Toronto Homophile Association (UHTA), Toronto Gay Action Now, and the Community Homophile Association of Toronto (CHAT) organized a picnic for the queer community. Toronto Pride is part of a long legacy of events and actions that defend the rights of the 2SLGBTQI+ community in the face of repression and discrimination.
