This weekend was Pride 2011 in Toronto. “Pride Week celebrates our diverse sexual and gender identities, histories, cultures, creativities, families, friends and lives.”
I have many gay and lesbian friends and I’m proud to live in a city that accepts them and gives them the same rights as anyone else. This year I had a little Pride Party of my own. We sat out on my balcony, giving us a great view of the famous parade as the party goers danced and sang their way down Yonge Street.
In honor of the day, I styled my outfit appropriately. Rainbow colours from head to toe as well as some bright and colourful flowers decorating my head. I got to wear one of my favourite necklaces which I rarely put one since it’s a bit over the top but that’s what Pride is all about and I was happy to participate! I was smiling all day as I walked around my streets (which just happen to be the center of where Pride is held) because Pride is one of the only times in the year when I can see as many people as colourfully dresses as I usually am everyday.
