Pride Toronto strikes it up

Toronto gears up for Pride 2012BY BRYEN DUNN

Pride Toronto promises to be the biggest to date with seven full stages of programming ranging from DJs to drag artists. Performers will be hitting some of the main stages, including Lady Miss Kier, Bif Naked, Die Mannequin, DJ Larry Tee, and 80’s heartthrob Corey Hart, who will be performing live for the first time in over a decade.

Nearly one million attendees will flock to the streets in various forms of dress and undress to celebrate acceptance and diversity of the LGBT community. The Friday Trans March and Saturday Dyke March bring out the event’s activist angle, while the Sunday Pride Parade is a four hour long showcase spectacle that winds its way through several miles of downtown streets. Attendees can also enjoy the Street Fair lined with arts, craft, and food vendors, as well as community groups.
