Last night I attended 519′s Starry Night event at the Greenspace on Church. It was a great way to kick off Pride among friends. Here are a few photos I took with Instagram at the private event from 7pm to 8pm where food, bubbly and vodka was served and I even spotted some local tv personalities, politicians etc. It was great starting the weekend off with an early party seeing as some of us have to work today.
Five years ago, the Board of The 519 endeavoured to create a chic, intimate, fabulous party for Toronto’s LGBTQ community – an opportunity to kick-off Pride weekend among celebrities, politicians, artists, activists, and members and friends of The 519. Starry Night was born, and with the support of BMO Financial Group and Cineplex Media, it has grown to become the must-attend event of Toronto’s Pride calendar. Last year ‘1001 Starry Nights’ drew more than 2,800 people to Cawthra Square Park throughout the evening.
Check out some photos I took at the event on the next part of the post.
I’ve been so busy with condo arrangements that I haven’t had the chance to write a regular post letely. I’ve decided to put some roots down by purchasing a pre-construction condominium in the West End. With the help of my real estate agent, we found this new development in the up and coming neighborhood on Ossington Street (Toronto). The development is a 6-storey building with 9 to 10 foot ceiling loft units. I’m excited to be able to pick the finishes that I want. It will be completed in a couple of years.
Summer is just around the corner and to prepare, I’ve purchased a new bike to get around the city since Toronto is much larger than Vancouver, it does take time to get to places even with transit. I figured the bike will be handy to get to and from work so I can be home as fast as I can and relax by the pool in the afternoon. I also bought a pair of rollerblades as another alternative. I figured in the Summer I’ll be spending less time indoor and at the gym so I might as well get some exercise while I’m out and about.

Summer has just begun but as you know, Fashion is always a season ahead. So here’s your sneak peek at what Fall 2012′s trends will be. As much as I love Summer and wearing lighter clothing, I gotta admit, I’ve learned how to love Fall for the layers. I love the rich jewel tones of the mens collection as well as the ever trusted blacks and greys. Slim silhouettes are still prevalent with a very British paperboy look, reminds me a lot of Thom Browne.
The womens collection has influences from Celine and Versace in prints and rich jewel tones.

I normally am not that adventurous when it comes to colour in my wardrobe but this season I am considering adding some splash of color with bold colored shorts & pants. Whether it be red, yellow, blue or mint (which Lady Gaga predicted in her “Marry the Night” video) it’s all a matter how you adapt it to your existing style.
I am gonna start by getting a bright blue pair and possibly ease myself into brighter colors like yellow or red. I will keep the pop of color to a minimum by pairing them with neutral colored tops in white, gray or black at night.
So hang up those khakis and try this new trend. Check out the video below and take the poll below. Will your booty be bright this summer?
In honor of Mother’s Day, some of the Homorazzi cast has decided to proclaim their love to their respective mothers on the website. We hope you enjoy the read.
I love my Mom, and just recently we’ve developed a relationship of being less Mother/Son and more friends who can share a good laugh and story over a drink or two. While growing up, I never thought that I would come to a place where I actually WANTED to hang out with my parents, but that day came knocking on my door a few years back after I invited them to my 23rd birthday party and they actually showed!
It dawned on my that my Mom is a pretty rad woman who cares a lot about her family and who’s sole goal in life is to make sure her children and grandchildren have everything in the world they could possibly want, even before her own needs. For this, I take my hat off to her, and say I love you with all my heart.
She hasn’t had the easiest life, but I would like to think that the few beers we shared in sun are well remembered and will keep her smiling!
Thanks for everything Momma, I love you!
