The last week of June each year, the City of Toronto explodes with colour and excitement as the fever of inclusion takes over the city. It’s another Pride Week.
Gay, straight, budgie…whatever you consider yourself, if you haven’t experienced the pageantry of Toronto Pride Week, you should consider your life cheapened. You should then get your butt to Toronto and party.
Following on the success of Pride Week, however, the other Deadly Sins have petitioned for their own festivals.
Greed Week is slated to run over two weeks and its organizers are actively petitioning for a third.
Wrath Week got pissed at everyone and so plans to do its own thing.
Planning for Envy Week has been difficult as organizers keep asking for the date to be moved because they feel the other Sins got better dates.
Lust Week started slow and gentle but really built up a head of steam before petering out.
Avarice Week demanded the largest budget and still refused to control its expenses.
Sadly, Sloth Week just never really took off.
