Default Toronto for World Pride 2014!

Eat it, Stockholm

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/...rticle1328774/

"Toronto will host the World Pride event in 2014, after the city beat its competitors in a weekend vote held at the global InterPride Conference in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Toronto received 78 per cent of the votes in the second round of balloting, eliminating its main competition, Stockholm.

The triumph is certain to be a boon for Toronto's economy, which saw an estimated $136-million pumped into it last summer as a result of the city's annual Pride Toronto celebration.

World Pride promotes lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender issues on an international level through parades, festivals, and other events."

No, you can't all come to crash! I only have one spare bed

That is awesome news--good for Toronto

And yah, I'm all for anything that will help tourism these days, totally aside from how cool it is to host the event.

I should be able to save up enough in 5 years to afford a hotel room and a flight for this. Melian, we're having a meet up in 5 years, so keep your calendar open.

The city really could use it - business has been sucking, and it's too bad that we have to wait until 2014.

Selfish bitch! LOL. You know, I just realized that I may not still be here in 2014...I'm set to defend my PhD in 2011 or 2012 at the latest, and then I may take a job in another country! So we're all screwed!!!

Awesome news! Well, mostly because I live in Toronto.

Every year we have an awesome Pride week and a fantastic parade. This is sure to make the year even better! I must say, as far as queer-friendly cities go, Toronto is pretty cool.
