Pride Toronto and Google+ have teamed up with renowned documentary maker Jeff Feurzeig (the Devil and Daniel Johnston) to create a series of documentaries for this year’s Pride Week.
Together: Stories by Pride & Google+ profiles a diverse cross-section of Toronto’s LGBT community. Everyone from Hugh & Gerald, a couple who marched in Toronto’s first Pride Parade in 1972, to drag queen, Jonathan.
Our favourite might be Connor’s story. An interview with a 17-year-old teen who came out just days before Feurzeig met up with him. And if you’re wondering why that voice at the end of each video sounds familiar? That’s Magnetic Fields frontman Stephin Merritt lending his warbling to the series.
That video and the rest of the Together series are below. You can also get the latest from the Pride Toronto organizers on their site or their Google+ page. The organizers have also put together a list of Canada’s top LGBT voices on the social network.
