Rob Ford attends Pride Toronto flag raising ceremony

Mayor Rob Ford surprised everyone by finally attending the rainbow flag raising ceremony hosted by Pride Toronto at City Hall. The mayor has notoriously skipped out on all Pride related events over the past two years. Supporters of the LGBT community packed the upper ramp area in front of city hall along with some protesters. The flag raising ceremony kicks off Pride Week festivities in the city and has been previously unattended by both the mayor and his brother.
