It’s reassuring to know that while there’s always a scheduled event in Toronto (World Naked Bike Ride, Rendezvous With Madness Film Festival, Nuit Blanche, Winterlicious, dandy bicycle polo, and pillow fights), the citizenry of this town refuses to spend the intervening hours sitting still.
Consider, then, this dashingly handsome couple seen recently strolling westward on Queen Street West at Roncesvalles. The twosome was on its way to a gay affair—of that we can be sure, but it’s worth noting that Toronto’s Zombie Walk isn’t until October 19. It’s possible that they might have had something to do with George A. Romero’s new film being shot in town, but whatever the reason, it’s nice for even the undead to show their true colours during the interim; it’s what keeps the city alive.
