Tourism Toronto and Pride Toronto are hosting a New York City based contest, marrying one lucky LGBTQ couple during Toronto’s 2012 Pride Festival.
Toronto’s Pride Festival is among the largest in the world, attracting an estimated one million people with visitors from all over the globe. This year’s festival starts on June 22 and concludes with the marquee event, the Toronto Pride Parade, on July 1. The winning couple will receive an exclusive wedding gift from Tourism Toronto, including two round trip Executive Class airline tickets from New York City to Toronto on Air Canada, wedding attire, hotel accommodations at the luxurious Windsor Arms Hotel, ground transfers, marriage ceremony as part of the Pride Parade, and more, valued at more than $20,000.
“Toronto is the first jurisdiction in North America to conduct same sex marriages and continues to be one of the hottest destinations for gay couples,” said David Whitaker, President & CEO of Tourism Toronto. “We are proud of the decade long legacy of gay marriage in Toronto.” Kevin Beaulieu, Executive Director, Pride Toronto said “Pride Toronto is pleased to once again partner with Tourism Toronto inviting people to join us in Canada’s largest celebration of LGBTQ history, courage, and diversity. Our marketing partnership with Tourism Toronto is building momentum in out of town markets as we move towards our World Pride celebrations in 2014.”
