How To Celebrate #PrideToronto From Home

While Pride Toronto might not be happening in the way many of us might have imagined, I like to think that #PrideMonth in 2020 is an opportunity for the world to come together more than ever. To celebrate the beauty of the LGBTQ+ community, the inclusionary messaging that Pride represents, and to celebrate what it means to be proud.

That’s why today I am announcing that I am partnering with OLG to bring you BTS with some of the best drag queens I know, support the LGBTQ+ community and helping you to gain access to some of the most anticipated virtual Pride events happening all month long!

It’s in full swing – The Toronto International Film Festival has taken over the city of Toronto and the energy is palpable.

He would play one ticket with my Mom and another with his coworkers. As I grew up, I took on the tradition and still to this day buy my lottery tickets every week. There’s something in the beauty of it and how it feels like I’m continuing something now in Dad’s name. Who knows? Maybe that possible $70 Million jackpot is meant for me and my family! I know it’s a long shot and I probably have more of a chance at winning some cash if I go onto some new online casinos and gamble my way through. Still, it’s more the feeling attached to it than the prospect of winning that gets me to buy the ticket. And we might just get lucky someday! Starting May 14, Ontarians will have the chance to win the highest single jackpot in Canadian history with LOTTO MAX – and the opportunity to now play on Tuesdays in addition to Fridays.
