Queer Pride 2014 at Buddies
FIERCE. FEARLESS. PROUD.
Queer Pride is a celebration of love and acceptance, where our community unites to rejoice in everything that we are and all that we can be. It is in this spirit that we offer you Queer Pride 2014 – a festival of queer theatre, comedy, art, music, and parties that showcases our community’s unstoppable spirit.
We welcome all of you who crave adventures beyond the expected, artists who refuse to conform, and communities who will not allow themselves to be silenced. On our stage, you will find a stellar line-up of Toronto’s most exciting queer entertainers, while Buddies After Hours offers up some of the most outrageous clubbing in the village.
So come catch a show and dance until last call. Come queer, come straight. Come as you are and feel the love at Buddies.
MAY 31 - JUNE 15
