Just back from Pride where just two hours ago they closed the streets and people are still streaming into the neighbourhood. The energy is building.
While waiting for BobaDoug, SharkBoy and I sat on the wall outside the 519 Community Centre, where we were entertained by a young, slightly high lesbian youth who wanted to know all about my Five Finger shoes. She and I eventually left the topic of shoes and got into a game of shouting “HAPPY CANADA DAY!!” at random people. SharkBoy was in stitches because, in true Torontonian fashion, when you yell a greeting at a stranger in this town they instantly put on this face of “Oh my god you are yelling at me and if I ignore you, you might disappear…”
Of course the slightly high lesbian youth would yell “Happy Cananaerrday!” and that made me laugh.
Regardless, here are some pics! Enjoy!
