On Sunday, May 5, 2013, about 250 people from LGBTQ and allied families came together at Christie Pits Park from across the Greater Toronto Area for our Family Visibility Day BBQ, an International Family Equality Day event. We had hot dogs and burgers on the grill, and many families brought a salad or dessert for the pot luck table.
Some people knew about the event ahead of time, other folks just happened to be in the park and saw what was going on and decided to join us.
The kids had a great time on the play structure, and with the giant bubble maker, the food, and the parachute games. When the adults weren’t chasing after kids, they were able to chat and catch up, and meet other LGBTQ-identified and allied parents.
For next year, our event is already booked – 11:00 AM on Sunday, May 4, 2014 at Christie Pits Park, Toronto.
Thanks for coming out to our event, we hope to see even more of you next year!
