Canadian Rockies International Rodeo and Music Festival
What: It’s the Gay Rodeo (pictured)!
When: Tomorrow to Monday, July 2.
Why: Get in the saddle with a stampede of gay cowboys. Oh, and line dance to country acts like Farmer’s Daughter and Emerson Drive. Shouldn’t be hard to rustle up a little Wild for your West.
Where: Calgary, Alberta.
What: Canada’s largest Pride Parade and celebration.
When: To July 1.
Why: It’s the biggest, flashiest and gaudiest party around, with an estimated 1 million spectators. Pride Toronto even owns the international trademark on the word “Pride.” Everyone else just gets to use it.
Where: Toronto, Ontario.
FIT FOR A QUEEN
What: Pride week in the Royal City.
When: July 1-8.
Why: Tea at the Empress, whale watching, a gay dog walk… It’s like PG Pride. Take your mom.
