You can live in the one of the most liberal countries in the world, like Canada, and still face homophobic comments.
That is what happens to people who organize Pride Toronto.
Members receive a barrage of hate mail every day. They say it just gives them the determination to keep going.
In this video, employees of the Toronto Star read out some of the messages members of Pride receive on social media.
‘If you were my child and you turned out gay, I’d burn you alive,’ says one message.
Rachel Lauren Clark, of Pride Toronto, said: ‘When you’re a person who hears that stuff everyday, you become numb to it.’
