Backdoor is a space for LBGTQ people and allies where we promote the notions of love, mutual consent, empathy and understanding. Homophobia, sexism, racism, transphobia, non-consensual touching, or violent conduct will not be tolerated. Reach out to any staff member should any actions concern you.

Toronto is on the unceded traditional territory of the Mississaugas of the New Credit, the Anishnabeg, the Chippewa, the Haudenosaunee and the Wendat peoples and is now home to many diverse First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples. It is covered by Treaty 13 with the Mississaugas of the New Credit. Alternative Pride Toronto supports truth and reconciliation with Canada’s Indigenous peoples and recognizes their enduring presence and resilience in this area for thousands of years.
