Every community has its truly committed. Until a few days ago, so did I. Prudishness, I thought, was the price of progression.
It was precisely homosexual and pro-"gay" parents who brought impressionable children to observe this highly-sexualized parade glorifying immorality and gender confusion. This is just one example, but a very troubling one, of how "gay parenting" harms children. I asked a woman who was hostile to me being there about the propriety of exposing kids to lewd behaviors and vulgarity.

Trustee Sam Sotiropoulos's motion to ban nudity at Toronto Pride - despite nudity being perfectly legal at the annual parade - was resoundingly defeated by the Toronto District School Board by a vote of 16 to 6 Wednesday, April 9.

The drag queens and gender-nonbinary youth at such events can appear preoccupied with their own ecstatic exhibitionism.
