Bassel Mcleash's long journey from Syria to Toronto and finally to Sunday's Pride parade was anything but smooth. It was a road filled with war, hatred and hardship, which is why the chance to participate in his first Pride parade was so special. "To be honest, I'm totally speechless," he said as he moved towards the start of the parade. "The excitement and the emotion that's happening, it's overwhelming. It's too much to handle."
