Halloween, it’s one of my favourite times of year. Having spent 13 years in Toronto, I have enjoyed the extraordinary celebrations the boys in the village put on every year. The one night a year when the gays shed their crowns for other masks. Hundreds of people from every walk of life congregate to Church and Wesley, the heart of the Gay Village, to celebrate all that is ghoulish and evil in the supernatural world. I’ve gone for several years. The streets erupt in celebration, as the Witches of Salem, Vampires, Ghosts, and Goblins flood the strip. The tradition began as far back as the 1960’s and allowed gay and straight men alike to dress up in what’s now described as drag. I’ve never gone in drag, maybe this year. I’d love to get my spook on, and gather my pals together for a night of frolic and run amuck. If you’re looking for the perfect costume and you live in the Toronto area, check out these great Halloween celebrators.
