Not really sure what the hell the problem is. I've had a few gay friends over the years and even THEY won't go to the Pride Parade in Toronto.
Being proud of who you are has nothing to do with being naked and/or simulating sex acts in a public place just because you're in a parade. Not that all participants act that way.
To be honest, I'm not really sure how appropriate it is for any mayor to show up in support of any non-family friendly event.
Ford is still an idiot no doubt but c'mon, has he not provided enough ammunition to rag on him for without cranking up the rhetoric to stupid levels?
I know that's how you Americans like to play politics, by cranking up the rhetoric but it's cheap, it's lazy and it only appeals to the lowest common denominator.
And chances are, if you watch Springer, Maury or Judge Judy, you're part of that lowest common denominator.

My guess is you've never been to a pride parade: You are merely parroting what you've heard from the anti-gay media. Yes, there are a few floats with scantily clad men and women in SOME parades. But if I want to see scantily clad women shaking their booties, I could watch family-friendly half-time shows any Sunday (well, at least in the fall). If I wanted to see bumping and grinding, I could watch the Grammy Awards. There's nothing all that special about what occurs at pride parades.

More importantly, most participants are very tame and main stream. Only a few parades around the world host the outre floats that popularly characterize gay pride. New York, San Francisco, Sydney, and Rio are the most famous Pride parades. The edgy floats increase world-wide interest. But they are hardly representative of parades held around the world.

Imagining that the more outlandish floats at the biggest pride parades characterize pride around the world is like imagining that Mardi Gras in New Orleans characterizes celebrations around the world.

Gay pride parades are disgusting. I was with my young children on vacation once in San Francisco and we had the misfortune of accidentally walking in an area where one of these pervert fests was going on. There were naked old men all over the place jerking off, performing oral sex on each other and even buttf*cking right out in the middle of the street.

You should write fiction novels for a living.

James1, again with his made up fantasies. You have no young children, and you sure as hell just didn't stumble upon a parade, let alone one where people were having sex. You are do delusional with what you would like to see, that you keep posting about for years now.

No one who has a family would go see this unnatural evil acts on the street. A family is Father Mother and Children and some times it could be a single parent family. Our God given traditional family value must be protected. Ford is the only man who can preserve this. So people should support him
