Market this week: Pride!

For the 4th year in a row, DECA Pride is pleased to present Pride at the Market!

This Thursday, June 20 from 4-7pm at East Lynn Park, here’s what’s in store (note that the farmers are there starting from 3:00pm onward):

Art Activityshow your pride and make your own flag to represent yourself / what you are proud of, hosted by the fantastic creatives at Create Art Studio, located at 1801 Danforth (this amazing studio has it all, classes, camps, parties, corporate events!)

Photo booth & more!  Monarch Park Collegiate’s Queer Straight Alliancewill set up and run Pride photo booths (rainbow and pink) for all the photo ops. They will also be handing out stickers, sunglasses and wristbands (generously donated by TD Bank!), and will have a “Count the Skittles” contest going throughout the market. 

You can find out more about the QSA on their instagram https://www.instagram.commpcqsa/ and blog https://mpcqsa.wordpress.com/

Music: The fantastic Coe Hill Girls are back with us for another year and will be filling the park with their awesome jams from 5-6pm

Story and craft: TRANSvolution, a local trans group, has teamed up with our friends at Silly Goose Kids to host readings of Rory’s Rainbow at 4:15 and 5:15pm, followed by a related craft. (See poster below) This beautiful story talks about identity expression, gender stereotyping and acceptance and is not widely available in stores.  Stop by Silly Goose at 2054 Danforth after the event on Thursday to buy your copy AND you’ll receive a special LoveisLove package.
