at the Pride Toronto Street Fair
Friday, June 23, 7-9pm
Saturday, June 24, 12-6pm
Sunday, June 25, 12-6pm
This installation is a free wheatpasting workshop for all ages facilitated by a collective of LGBTQ2S+ artists, designers, writers, and curators. Participants have the opportunity to make posters and use original posters made for this installation to create a wheat pasted wall that celebrates queer knowledge and history, which will be on display at multiple sites across Toronto after the Pride festival.
DIY LOVE is created by Kaythi, Seiji, Will Carpenter, Natalie Mark, John Wigle, Maya Wilson-Sanchez, and Lex B.
It is supported by OCAD University, OCAD U Diversity, Equity & Sustainability Initiatives, Xpace Cultural Centre, and Toronto’s larger LGBTQ2S+ community.
We would like to thank the artists and groups who kindly donated posters and other content to the project:
