Blockorama/Blackness Yes!


Welcome to Blockorama

Blockorama and Blockobana are two events organized by Blackness Yes!, a volunteer collective made up of professional DJs, stage and visual artists, community organizers, healthcare practitioners and activists.

We have a 21-year history of building and sustaining safe spaces for African, Black and Caribbean (ABC) LGBTQ communities through art, music, AIDS awareness and outreach.


Events


Blockorama

Pride Toronto’s longest running and largest stage was born from the lack of representation for African, Black and Caribbean LGBTQ community members during Pride Toronto’s yearly festival.

Blockobana

Closing party of Black Pride Weekend. Blockobana is a day music and arts festival in Regent Park where LGBTQ African, Black and Caribbean people celebrate our culture free from homophobia, transphobia and anti-black racism.
