Toronto Pride 2007 To Welcome the Indigo Girls


The Indigo Girls headlining Canada's largest gay pride festival. Yep, it seems like an obvious fit, but with Toronto Pride growing more and more commercial every year, I'm finding the announcement today a pleasant surprise.

Before mainstream film/tv/music became enthralled by gay storylines -- or I shoud say, actors performing *as* gay people -- and certainly before coming out could ever be debated a 'good' thing for your career, there were the Indigo Girls. Quintessential gay folk songwriters, dueling on guitar and writing folk music that's loved and cherished by the LGBT community and beyond.

So here's a nod of approval to Toronto Pride for trying to 'keep it real'.
