The theme for our annual Pride exhibition ‘That’s So Gay’ this year is Come Together–resonating now more than ever.
Come Together represents a call for action, for unity and for solidarity. And in the most literal sense possible, Come Together, is really simple. It’s a call to just be together.
In 2003, the Gladstone Hotel took on a big mission: the responsibility and opportunity to carve out a safe space for artists, queer people, Parkdalians and the greater Toronto community to, you guessed it, come together. Operating under this vision for over 10 years, the Gladstone has evolved into one of the West End’s LGBTTI2QQ landmarks and a venue space known for being inclusive.
And just in time for Pride Week–we’ve launched Snapchat so you can show us, in real time, how you Come Together.
For every snap we receive of our upcoming Pride Events, we will donate $1 to Rainbow Railroad, helping LGBTQ people around the world escape violence.
Here’s how it works:
Follow us on Snapchat (@gladstonehotel)
Send us a snap (photos and videos) that shows what coming together means to you at our Pride at the Gaystone events—from raging at a party to hugging a loved one to documenting the Dolly Parton Look-A-Like contest (yes, there is a Dolly Look-A-Like contest)
Our upcoming Pride events:
Steers & Queers: Night of 1000 Dollys (June 30)
Toastr (July 2)
