WorldPride 2014 Toronto - Where We Are

This is an announcement from the Asexual WorldPride committee. We are posting this to keep you up-to-date on what’s happening for WorldPride.

Events

Saturday June 28: International Asexual Conference

There will be a free one-day international conference with talks, panels, workshops and media opportunities where all are welcome. You may register through our email worldpride@asexuality.org or on our Facebook or Tumblr.

The conference location will be announced in the next few weeks so stay tuned.

Sunday June 29: Pride Parade

The parade will begin at 2 pm starting at Bloor Street East and Church Street. It will stretch down Yonge Street and end at Dundas Street. We’ll be handing out information about asexuality during the event. Feel free to dress creatively (just remember that it can get hot in Toronto during the summer).

Information about Travel and Accommodation

Here are links to the master threads in the WorldPride forum that contain the information you’ll need. These threads cover aspects of traveling, car pooling and accommodations. Feel free to check them out for help or come with suggestions of your own. You can add your own input, ask questions and request assistance if needed.

If you’re planning on driving to Toronto, check out our carpooling thread which contains different surveys, spreadsheets to register your interest, and handy google maps which allow you to see fellow carpoolers in your area as well as suggested routes. This will make it easier for you to find others to carpool with and others to find you.

It would also be great if you could write about WorldPride, and more specifically about the asexual community’s involvement in it in your blogs, tweets, etc. and/or reblog them using the WorldPride tag #WP14TO and the asexual tag #asexuality.

Not Broken Not Alone - from Rodney Uhler

"Not Broken Not Alone" follows a group of asexuals in London as they prepare for their biggest international meet-up, World Pride 2012. The film explores not only the complexities asexuals experience within their own community, but within their efforts to gain visibility and acceptance by the greater public.
