Well, that was really something.
As Pride month officially wrapped up over the past week in Toronto (culminating in an epic Pride Parade), Daily Hive and PHOTOPHILCRO took to the streets to capture the wonderful – and colourful! – spirit of Pride.
The Inside Out Festival premiere of HBO’s LOOKING.
Final Play at Yonge-Dundas Square.
Church Street Fair.
We were everywhere last week.
But we had good reason to be. We were trying to capture the essence of Pride – the literal faces behind, in front, and all over Pride. The very portraits that make Pride the exciting, electric, and enduring canvas that it is.
Now we’re back to share with you the incredible Portraits of Pride by the talented Phil Crozier. And they are all kinds of beautiful.
Portraits of Pride feature:
Aydian Dowling, Parade Grand Marshall
Joe Jonas and DNCE
Alex Newell (Glee)
Bianca Del Rio
Brook Lynn Hytes
Murray Bartlett (LOOKING)
Mayor John Tory
Premier Kathleen Wynne
And many, many more.
