Helping to Celebrate All Black LGBTQI Diversity and Excellence 

Toronto, Canada: We are proud to announce our sponsors for the Global Black Pride (GBP) 2022 on July 27th -31st in Toronto, Canada. BGP 2022 convenes Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersexed (LGBTQI) people of African decent from around the world to uplift contributions from the diaspora. In collaboration with Pride Toronto and Blackness Yes!, this week-long event challenges social inequities with a human rights conference, promotes health and wellness with a global village health zone as well as enjoyment through social gatherings and artistic expressions. 

Our headline sponsor TD Bank and platinum sponsor Gilead have given generously to GBP. We also would like to announce Flow Alkaline Spring Water, Outright Action International, Viiv Healthcare, Redbull, Metrolinx  and Grindr as sponsors for GBP 2022. We thank you for your support. All contributions will go to event production and event logistics that  will make GBP 2022 successful.

Our myriad of expressions will be brought together and shown for everyone to see.”
