Affiliate Events

UPDATED: February 10, 2014

WorldPride Affiliate Events are organized and produced by community groups and external organizations.  These events may be community-based or commercial events, but they must support the diversity initiatives of Pride Toronto / WorldPride.  The events can range from cultural, artistic, family, youth, all-ages and / or adult only.  Over the last 5 years, the affiliate events program has grown successfully to help bring a wide range of events to the LGBTTIQQ2SA* community in Toronto during the month of June.  For WorldPride 2014 Toronto, we encourage groups to hold events with an international focus, and in locations right across the GTA. 

*LGBTTIQQ2SA is an abbreviation used to represent a broad array of identities such as, but not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, intersex, queer, questioning, two-spirited, and allies.


WorldPride 2014 Affiliate Events must be held between June 1 - 30, 2014.
The Official WorldPride 2014 Toronto Festival takes place from June 20 - 29, 2014.
