It was confirmed earlier this week by Pride Toronto executive director, Olivia Nuamah, that organizers and police will be stepping up security at the 2019 Toronto event. This decision was made after an altercation broke out at the Hamilton Pride festival last weekend, where several people ended up with minor injuries.

This, Nuamah says, is what makes the event so important, and why Pride should be called a protest rather than a celebration. “When people ask what is Pride and why we continue to call Pride a protest” Nuamah said. “There is a significant problem when it comes to full acceptance of the LGBTQ2+ community in Canada and all over the world.”

To combat any potential protestors, both Pride Toronto and Toronto police have added extra security measures to ensure the event remains a safe space for everyone. Nuaamah said, “Between the two of us we pretty much promise that our Pride will be a Pride that will not be infected with this disease.”

Toronto’s Pride parade will begin at 2 p.m. at Church and Bloor streets and will continue across to Yonge Street, south on Yonge to Dundas Street and east on Dundas to Victoria Street. Tens of thousands of people are expected to march in the parade in Canada’s biggest city.
