Welcome to Toronto Queer Walking Tours!
The only Queer walking tour in Canada – in Toronto!
Toronto Queer Walking Tours is and was created to bring another aspect to Toronto’s walking tours. Toronto is one of the most walked cities in the world.
As long as there has been a Toronto/York there have been queer people living here. They have lived in different parts of Toronto and different types of Queer communities. What T.Q.W.T hopes to bring is a sense of how we fit into this big wonderful city that we call Toronto. Through knowledge and education we can better understand what makes up a queer community and how the past has changed the way we see ourselves and others. The walking tours that will be offered will show glimpses of how Queer people lived in different pockets of the city. Most of the tours will be Queer- focused.
Toronto Queer Walking Tours over time will also do more research and find more historical documents over time to shed more light on Toronto’s Queer past. This will help to bring a better understanding to the communities that we live in now, and how they might have been a hundred years ago.
Another aspect of the Toronto Queer Walking Tours is we will also go into classrooms and educate students about the communities that are in Toronto. As well as giving them ideas on how they are part of their own community and how their actions affect society. Through this, the hope is that we will see less homophobia towards people that are different to themselves.
Toronto Queer Walking Tours will also have a page for community events and organizations in the city. This way, when someone comes to visit the city, they will have some ideas on what to do and see. Maybe they might go and see one of our many sports teams play or listen to one of our many choirs perform. The Queer community in Toronto is more than just the village itself but all of the city - which is one of the most open minded cities in the world.
We all hope that you will come on out and be part of the tours
that are being offered.
