These Instagrams make us want to hop the next flight to Toronto

Lots of young people lay in Trinity Bellwoods Park, with vibrant green trees and green grass all around them, in Toronto.

Nestled on the east coast, just north of New York and the American border sits Canada’s crown jewel: the city of Toronto.

Noted for its architecture, remarkably diverse citizenry and world-famous film festival, The Big Smoke, as the locals call it, is actually one of the most gay-friendly cities in the world. Remarkably, it also features not one but two gay ‘hoods.

Don’t believe us? Have a look at these stunning Instagrams that show off the city’s awesomeness.
