To quote our District Governor Mary Lou Harrison, "Happy Pride Everyone! Truly an inspirational day! A huge shout out to Grant Godino of the LGBT RAF Rotary Fellowship for the graphic design assistance!"  The parade was seen live by almost 1 million people who descended on Toronto from all over the world. The parade was broadcast and live streamed world wide by CP 24. Be sure to see the District 7070 Facebook Page and the albums on that page for lots of Rotarians and friends celebrating Rotary's values of inclusion of everyone in our clubs and in our communities. What a huge boost for Rotary's Public Image. The District 7070 website will also have an album of this event.
