United We Are Different: York@WorldPride Parade
Jun 29, 2014, 1pm-4pm
York@WorldPride June 20 to 29
This year, Toronto celebrates with the world! One of the largest international events, WorldPride is a celebration of the history, courage and future of the LGBTQ+* communities. It unites us to rejoice in everything that we are and all that we can be.
York@WorldPride invites you to connect with the spirit of Pride and rise up in solidarity with queer communities and their accomplices. Together we will showcase the acceptance, diversity and inclusivity that York promotes while welcoming individuality. The Art Gallery of York University (AGYU), Centre for Human Rights (CHR), York Federation of Students (YFS), Trans, Bi, Lesbian and Gay Allies at York (TBLGAY), Glendon Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender (GLgbt*) and SexGen York committee want you to share your true colours and get involved with Toronto’s WorldPride Week and all of York’s multifaceted festivities.
Perform! Keep a look out for us at the WorldPride Parade on Sunday, June 29, starting at a new time of 1pm at Bloor and Church with a route that goes all the way down Yonge to Dundas Square. All York students, faculty, staff and their friends are welcome to jump and dance to the bouncing tracks of DJ Quinceswho who has created the ultimate party music playlist. Ensure you dress for the weather and bring sunscreen – the march goes ahead rain or shine.
Want to be part of the parade and dance on York@WorldPride’s float? Contact Gayle McFadden at YFS at firstname.lastname@example.org for information. Bring your reusable water bottles; it is going to be hot, hot, hot!
