Toronto World Pride 2014 is already off to a great start. Over 10,000 spectators watched the kick off to the first night that included Canada’s first openly gay premiere speaking.
Ontario’s Premiere Kathleen Wynne shared how proud she was that her recent election faced no backlash involving her sexuality.
“Jane and I just travelled for 42 days around this province, and we have been elected. And not once, not once, did anyone challenge us because we are lesbians.”
Providing the entertainment for the night were Deborah Cox, Steve Grand, and Melissa Etheridge. Cox wowed the crowd with her epic club hits and sexy go go dancers. Steve Grand performed his hit All American Boy with a lyric change to Canadian Boy that pleased the local crowd.
Grand tweeted about how much he enjoyed the event,
