3.  Friday, June 29  –  The Toronto Trans March
A grass-roots community focused event, providing a safe space for trans identified people to rally, stand up, and come together in solidarity. The Trans March Rally begins at 6:00 pm at Norman Jewison Park. The March itself begins at 7:30.
.
Note: The new, unauthorized Trans March begins where there ‘official’ Pride March ends. So we’ll be joining that, too.

Queer Ontario will be participating in the march as an allied group. Join us at Norman Jewison Park at 7:20 pm — or earlier if you want to take in the Rally!

The world-renown Pride Parade, which is set to begin at 2:00 pm.

Queer Ontario will have a marching contingent, just like we did last year. If you want to march with us, meet us at our designated spot (“F24,” near Bloor Street and Ted Rogers Way) at 1:45 pm. The estimated time requirement for this event is approximately two hours.

6.  Sunday, July 1st  –  The Community Fair
The annual street fair featuring food vendors, commercial enterprises, and community groups that wish to, and can afford to, pay for a space. 12:00 noon to  6:00 pm

Queer Ontario will be stationed with its trusty table on Alexander Street, right next to Buddies in Bad Times Theatre, meeting and greeting new people and organizations from Toronto and beyond. We are particularly interested in getting to know what life is like for you and your significant others in your hometowns, and the issues you feel need to be addressed most urgently; so do stop by and say hi!
