Queer Pride 2021

Hosted by Buddies in Bad Times Theatre

Queer Pride is radical love and defiant self-expression. It’s a time to celebrate everything that we are and all that we can be, while reimagining the spaces we create for all of our queer communities to come together. It is in this spirit that we offer you Queer Pride 2021 – a festival of queer theatre, comedy, art, music, and parties that showcase our community’s unstoppable spirit.

Reflecting the realities of the pandemic, a stellar line-up of queer artists re-envision how our communities can continue to celebrate Pride…in place. This year’s festival manifests in free digital and in-person (at-a-distance) offerings that extend past Buddies’ home in the Village and into neighbourhoods across Toronto – and of course, directly to your screens.

So, from six feet apart or from the comfort of your home, catch a show, listen to a conversation, get your digital dance on, and reconnect with community. Come and celebrate. Come and feel the love with Buddies.
