The small crowd in front of city hall welcomed a pleasant surprise.
Mayor Rob Ford made an appearance at today's flag-raising ceremony and delivered the mayor's proclomation, despite turning down the invitation earlier.
The intimate event marked International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.
The mayor's proclomation was delivered by Councillor Frances Nunziata last year and Councillor Gord Perks was scheduled to announce it today.
The mayor said that he won't be attending the PRIDE parade because he'll be up at the cottage with his family.
