A Celebration of Madness from July 8th to July 14th, 2013
Mad Pride is an arts, culture, and heritage festival created by psychiatric survivors, consumers, mad people, and folks the world has labeled “mentally ill”.
Mad Pride is about:
• remembering and participating in mad history
• challenging discrimination
• advocating for rights
• affirming mad identities
• developing and empowering mad communities
• having fun!
Our lives and contributions are valuable and need celebration!
Join us in celebrating the 20th anniversary of Mad Pride Toronto! All events are FREE and include: music, theatre, poetry, comedy, and educational talks/workshops as well as an art exhibition, barbeque, dance party, historical wall tour, Mad Hatter’s Tea Party, Mad Market, and The Great Escape Bed Push Parade.

Thank you for reading this story…
More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable.
rabble.ca has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.
So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.
And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
