Tthis event will honour global leadership with the presentation of the WorldPride Awards.
This fundraiser in support of our future leaders will bring international LGBTTIQQ2SA celebrities and leaders together to honour award recipients who have made a significant global impact towards the advancement and acceptance of LGBT people around the world.
Im proud to be a Canadian because we embrace and celebrate diversity, says k.d. lang. "I will be celebrating WorldPride 2014 in June and Im inviting everyone to join the festivities in Toronto. It is an honor to be part of this international festival that brings people together from around the globe. Let our diverse freak flags fly."
Hosted at the historic Arcadian Court in downtown Toronto, the gala will support Canada's only national leadership retreat for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, genderqueer, non-binary, two-spirit, queer, questioning, pansexual, asexual, and allied youth between the ages of 14 and 24. The Camp, which was founded in 2004 by Dr. Andr P. Grace and Dr. Kristopher Wells, is designed to help youth develop the leadership skills and personal resiliency necessary for them to become agents for positive change in their schools, families, and communities.
We are so pleased to stand together to honour leaders and future leaders in the LGBT community, says Kate Louisa Morton Daniels, WorldPride Gala Co-Chair. This once-in-a-lifetime event helps shine a light on Canadas position in promoting the importance of LGBT rights as human rights.
