I listened to an interview the other day with Mark Singh, the Toronto Pride Chairman who brought World Pride to Canada and got to hear his reasons for doing so. If you haven't heard it already, I encourage you to take a few minutes and listen.

It's an inspiring little clip that talks not only about his hopes for what comes after the LGBT Pride celebration is over, but echoes sentiments voiced by every organization that coordinates those events all over the world.
There were rumbled discussions last month about Pride being vapid, shallow, and uninspired. Some people think the events serve no real purpose other than providing an excuse for people to dance naked (literally) in the streets. That's just the surface. Those involved in planning and executing these events know differently. To anyone still doubting, I encourage you to volunteer at one of next year's events and see what's going on under the party atmosphere. You might be surprised. Take a year...think it over.
