Pride Toronto is a not-for-profit organization with a mission to bring people together to celebrate the history, courage and diversity of our community.

 

Uniting and empowering people with diverse sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, the annual Pride Toronto festival has become a major Canadian arts and cultural event and the largest Pride celebration in North America. Pride showcases Toronto on the world stage with diversity, inclusion and vibrant creativity.
