Pride: 2022

This weekend is all about Pride, and after a Covid-19 imposed hiatus of two years, Toronto’s ready to celebrate.

Last weekend, Disney’s Lightyear opened worldwide…

Almost worldwide.

The animated movie was banned in Bahrain, Egypt, Indonesia, Iraq, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Malaysia, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria and UAE.

Why?

Because of a same-sex kiss that lasts about as long as a blink.

Oh, the horror. That growing minds should be exposed to the idea that affection and love can exist between two people.

So, yes, let the Pride flags fly this weekend. Let the sun shine, the music blare, and people of every persuasion dance and hug and kiss in the streets.

Let Toronto shout out loud and proud for all people who can’t.
