Pride in Toronto

The following are a series of images from the 2018 Pride Toronto Parade where life, love, diversity and pride were on full and glorious display.

The weather this Sunday was horrid. Poured rain all morning. Thankfully it let up for the big parade. I was debating whether or not to head down with my camera given the conditions and general Sunday malaise with a touch of World Cup fever.

In the end, I had seen enough football for the day and decided to get out of the house and head down to Church and Bloor streets. I spent a couple of hours at the staging area of the parade where the floats merge with the marchers. Not too crowded so one could move about and the subjects were lingering and getting fired up before hitting the parade route. A great spot for documenting the people and spirit of the day.

All images shot with my Canon 5D Mark II and 70-200mm f/2.8 lens. Most shot wide open and as tight as I could get.
