Stella Celebrates Gay Pride Week in Toronto


Stella may not be gay but she has been known to hump a leg or two which, in her mind anyway, makes her a just a little bit butch. And when she heard it was pride week here in Toronto, she just HAD to join in the festivities. So she donned her rainbow cape (which she got free from HomeSense) and Super Butch personna and headed off to Toronto's world famous Gay Pride Parade.



OMD, Stella had so much fun.
She woofed and cheered at some outrageous floats and costumes:


She met awesome people:


And when the PFLAG (Parents for Lesbians and Gays) marchers came in to view waving their "Proud of Our Gay Children" signs, I swear I saw Stella tear up a little.



Stella was also really excited to see the Canadian Armed Forces, Police Department, Fire Department, NDP, Green Party and Toronto Councillors out showing their support for Toronto's Gay community. It is nice to know that Toronto does not just spout off about diversity and acceptance, we can actually go ahead and practice what we preach. Yay Pride week!

Hi
Thanks for visiting me. That looks like a great parade. I don't think we have a whole week of Pride in Denver-- just a parade that starts around the corner from us!

Hey Stella,
Looks like you had a blast at Pride. I can't wait to get to go to a Pride celebration! No one will judge me there for loving to chew on bully sticks (bull wang).
C-ya,
