2006 Toronto Gay Pride Parade

Tens of thousands of people lined downtown streets Sunday for one of the largest gay and lesbian Pride celebrations in North America.

The climax of this week's Pride events kicked off Sunday at the corner Bloor and Church Streets. "Fearless" is the theme of this year's festivities.

Beyond Church Street will be taking you inside Toronto Pride 2006 with full access and coverage to all events. Starting this week, coverage of the event will include some big highlights from the parties.

This years pride theme, Fearless, is about how far we’ve come and how far we have yet to go, being bold proud and true, it’s about the courage to be open about who you are, and to celebrate people in our past and present who make it increasingly possible to live without fear.
