Now in its fourth year, Thunder Pride Week (June 8-15) is a week-long celebration of tolerance and acceptance of members of the LGBTQ2S (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual, transgender, queer, questioning, and 2-spirited) community. Thunder Pride kicks off with a flag-raising at city hall, followed by various events throughout the week including an awareness breakfast, a literary night, a film night, a night of healing, a church service, and a drag show, and culminating in the Pride Parade and the popular Pride in the Park Music Festival at Marina Park, headlined this year by Toronto punk rockers Die Mannequin with local acts Married Singlemen, Miss Temperance and Jaqi Iraqi, and more.
