WorldPride 2014 Pictures & Videos!

56 posts in this topic

Hi everyone!

THANK YOU ALL for coming out to all the events this weekend! What a truly incredible weekend, full of amazing people and times... AND PICTURES!

I know many people here took pictures over the course of their time at WorldPride! Since not everyone knows everyone else on Facebook, Twitter, or G+, I would like to invite everyone to post their photos and videos here for people to look at and share!

By posting a link to your albums here, we will have a chance to not only see all the events in their photographic glory, we will also have a chance to get photos of ourselves for sharing on social media or removed from being shared. While the conference was organized to keep people who did not want to be in photos out of the line of the camera, the parade was much more of a free-for-all of photos and so it would be nice to give people a chance to opt out.

So, without further ado... Let's see your pictures!

Asexuality Leadership Q&A session

Grey-asexuality and Demisexuality

(A)romantic Identities

Asexual Relationships and Dating

I regret that I wasn't able to record (ran out of memory) the last part of the discussion. It was a question about "When is it the right time to tell someone you are dating that you are Asexual". I think in sort, the answer is that it is unique to every situation and one would have to weight up the level of risk as to the timing of that communication. And I think you can hear in the video the advice on communication is to be open with your communication to a point that doesn't make you vulnerable.

Supposed to get to Pearson at 4am but started early and now I'm camping out at Pearson.





Along the parade route as I handed out the cards there were three things that I heard or saw that's worth a little mention.
1) a lady pointed at her friend and said "she is asexual."
2) a lady said she was really glad we were there.
3) a girl in her mid teens looked really excited to receive a card, but her mother said "no, no honey", and reached for her card. (I thought it was funny)

In the last photo the poster above me put the one with the bright light effectively whitening out my face is ME! Also with the ACe tronto gorup photo marching i reconise a lot of the people in the group. So happy i went also if anyone has video of the asexual leadership session can someone send me a link and or let me know where and when its posted? I wanted to see that one but i really wanted to go to another session that was a happening at the same time.

I have the videos and will be working to upload them in the next few days. They are large files so it will take time to process them.

Some will only know those people in the pictures if they have actually met them

is it possible for those in the pictures to tell others of their aven names? this might allow a better connection between those that went and those who did not...just an idea?

I show up in a couple of the group ones of the parade, but with the larger groups it might be harder to pick someone out across a crowd. I know for myself it would be hard to describe where I am in the pictures that are already up unless you know who I am to look for me already. I was one of the two people carrying the large Asexuality flag though...so in theory I could continue to pop up as photos come in.

(Too bad it was freakishly hot out. I was starting to have issues with the heat early on and that just continued to get worse through the parade route.)

It was wonderful to meet you all! (I'm Jess, from Boston! You can see me in the last picture, holding the banner between the words "Asexual" and "Visibility.") I had SO much fun in Toronto and I definitely want to hang around the forums more often now. :)

See you all in Madrid in 2017! ;)

I second that! Ooo, I'll be 40 then :unsure:. I will also be interested to piggyback a backpacking trip around Europe. Time to save up!

I'm glad to see I only appear in two of the photos, and in none of them properly :P

Those below are the ones I took of the march... Let me know if you want any of them removed!

Yep I dyed part of my hair red and It been awhile since my last trim. Though this is the only photo I think you'll see me in since I was unable to go ahead and do any marching because of time and physical constraints. Unless someone snags one of me while I was at the conference in the background or something.

hahaha YES I'm so glad this picture exists. (Many apologies to whoever's face I'm blocking there!)

I'm also totally snagging that picture of the back of my head. Asexual and proud!
