As the movement for LGBTTIQQ2SA* human rights continues to grow, so do Pride events around the world. WorldPride 2014 Toronto is a festival connected to a much larger global movement. Presented by Pride Toronto, WorldPride 2014 Toronto will be the world's largest international LGBT festival to date, and the first WorldPride in North America. A ten-day international celebration, taking place from June 20 -- 29, 2014, incorporating activism, education, and the history and culture of global LGBTTIQQ2SA* communities.

WorldPride 2014 Toronto

Check out all of the events at World Pride in Toronto! 


WorldPride 2014 Toronto (WP14TO), presented by Pride Toronto, is shaping up to be one of the biggest international events of our times. These ten days of queer celebration will turn streets into parades, parks into parties and strangers into friends. Come out and meet the people from around the world expected to gather downtown and in neighbourhoods right across the city.
This will be an international celebration incorporating activism, education, and the history and culture of global LGBTTIQQ2SA* communities. Highlighting Canada’s continued progress in human rights, WP14TO also celebrates the diversity and dynamism of Toronto, one of the world’s most progressive and liveable cities.
Toronto will be the first WorldPride celebration ever held in North America, and the 4th such festival in the world. WorldPride brings people together from around the world to honour our past, celebrate the present, and inspire a better future for LGBTTIQQ2SA* communities everywhere.
Deborah Cox, Martha Wash and DJ’s David Morales and Quentin Harris are the first in a list of premiere international artists to perform at the world’s largest global LGBTQ celebration taking place in Toronto this summer.

A wide variety of musical genres will be presented live on the 10 open-air stages of the festival from rock, pop, dance, hip hop, R&B, country, traditional, folk, retro, disco. We're looking forward to presenting a number of international performers for WorldPride as well. The application process is underway, the deadline for applications is January 31, 2014.

There are also a variety of artistic genres represented in programs like Alterna-Queer (Punk, homo-core, experimental, rock), and Blockorama (house, roots reggae, R&B, Hip Hop, Dancehall).

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender rights around the world


Being lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender is illegal in almost 80 countries, and in at least five of them is still punishable by death. In honour of the International day against homophobia and transphobia on 17 May, explore the legal situation for LGBT people around sex, marriage or civil partnerships, adoption, workplace discrimination and hate crime by region, country and overall population
