One of its main demands was that the Toronto police be prohibited from participating in the parade and that no police floats be permitted. The following day he scrapped the agreement with BLM. Shortly after, Chantelois was accused of racism and sexual harassment and resigned from the Toronto Gay Pride Parade organization.
It looks like it's this weekend when we'll be there with the family - mom medad, 2 teens and a 5-year-old. Is this a fun event or " too much" for young eyes.

By Andrew Solomon. When we hear of Pride marches today, we tend to think of fuss and feathers, of men more than half-naked waving from rainbow-hued, Lurex-draped parade floats, of Dykes on Bikes who gun their motors in defiance of gender norms, of waving gay and trans celebrities. They are fiestas that percolate through the cities and sometimes small towns of the developed world, as well as some parts of the rest of the world, and they mark the fact that gay people exist in numbers, provide documentary evidence that we have more fun and are more fabulous than anyone else, that we are gay in the old sense of the word.

Toward the end of the meeting, Sotiropoulos took to the lobby to tell reporters he is simply asking police to enforce Canadian law. A Ontario ruling found that nudity at a rally or demonstration can be considered part of personal expression.
Initiated as small, defiant, sexually daring protests, gay pride parades have become mainstream spectacles patronized by corporate sponsors and straight politicians as they spread nationwide. At issue was a warning from police and organizers that rules related to nudity and sexual behavior would be enforced more strictly than in past years. Police said anyone violating indecency laws in front of children could be charged with a felony.
I just returned from a weekend in Amsterdam and I feel I need to share something important: Amsterdam is damn pretty. And along the entire route, the scene from the canals was nothing short of beautiful. And not just the buildings, but the people, too.
