Alternative Pride Festival 2019
June 20 - 24, 2019
The 1st annual Alternative Pride Toronto Festival is an independent, non-corporate, artist-led music and art festival celebrating queer artists and spaces. Taking place over 4 days, we present unique and diverse events including warehouse take-overs, outdoor urban activations, wild gallery parties, and grimey underground after-hours - all while raising money for some important Toronto queer charities.

You’ve made it through Pride. In the distance, you see an oasis. You get closer and realize, it's real, and it's Love Mirage! A drag & dance party with some of the best drag artists from across the city, from ingénues to gender benders, burlesque beauties and legends, and local and international DJs coming together to create an optical and aural illusion for you to get lost in.
