Everyone was dressed up (from Walt Disney characters to sexy nurses and doctors and from ghouls and ghosties to Rocky Horror types... and, erm, real live walking talking Jackson Pollock paintings...) and the atmosphere was electric.
The weather helped too: everyone was dry and happy and it was heart warming to see the effort that had gone in to making the occasion memorable. Huge kudos to Casa Loma for their stellar efforts.
Afterwards we went up to the gaybourhood (the inclusive area was having an amazing costume party - or as we Brits like to call it: a 'fancy dress' parade) to shindig with Mums, Dads, kids, students, doctors, refuse collectors, painters, contractors, media types, PR's, lawyers, baristas and pretty much every socio economic demographic, creed, colour, race, religion, sexuality and so on. This 'inclusive' nature is one of the aspects that makes Toronto so fuc*ing AMAZING. No dramas, no hassles or stresses (that we could see, certainly) and just an electric buzz of awesome people having an awesome time. Isn't that what it's all about? Can't we all just be together? Peace, love and hair grease, C&J xx
