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).
