Blackness Yes Blackness Yes Toronto The Blockorama stage is one of the most enjoyable and dynamic stages at Toronto Pride. Blockorama is organized by Blackness Yes!, a community-based committee that celebrates Black queer and trans history creativity and resistance. Our mandate is to create a space for LGBTTQQ2SIA folks of African descent and their friends, loved ones and supporters. Blockorama started as and is still a space of resistance, actively fighting systemic racism, transphobia, homophobia, ableism, sexism, classism and colonialism. We are committed to anti-oppression, (self) love freedom and justice. We are anti- imperialist and are against the occupation of Palestine and Turtle Island. This year we will be celebrating 16 years of Blockorama programming!
