The Anglican presence in the Toronto Pride Parade 2003, 2004,2005 and 2006 were great successes. Our float (photos below) was very popular with the crowds, who cheered, clapped and danced along to our music. In 2003, Archbishop Ted Scott rode on the float, and in 2005, Archbishop Terry Finlay helped carry the lead banner (look for the purple shirts in the photos).
Every year we have handed out 2000 cards which listed the LGBT-positive parishes in the area, and referred people to this website. Most of those parishes had parishioners and clergy in the parade. We took pictures of course, and the fun is recorded on photo pages here for 2003 , for 2004 for 2005 for Toronto 2006 and for London 2006. Enjoy!
