1. Black Lives Matter brought Toronto Pride parade to a standstill on Sunday in a protest against Pride Toronto’s “anti-blackness.” Among their demands, the group asked Pride to increase funding and support for Black Queer Youth events and Blockorama, the Pride showcase for black performers; reinstate the South Asian stage; hire more black deaf and ASL interpreters; hire more black trans women, indigenous people, and others from vulnerable communities; and remove police floats from future parades. The parade resumed after Pride Toronto’s executive director and board co-chair reviewed and signed the list of demands on the spot, but recent reports appear to show the group might be waffling on what they agreed to.
