Gay York Region

Irrespective of their sexuality, many residents of York Region believe that there are no gay related services, resources or venues in this region – all such things are to be found in Toronto.

In reality, nothing could be further from the truth. The region has gay friendly venues, social groups, support groups, numerous LGBT service providers, plus its own annual pride parade and festival.

GayYorkRegion exists to provide a central point of reference to all local LGBT services and resources.  Visit GayYorkRegion
