MTV Hosts, Lauren Toyota and Phoebe Dykstra are set to host ‘MTV Presents: POP GOES PRIDE’ in celebration of WorldPride 2014 Toronto! Lauren and Phoebe will kick off this free outdoor event at the WorldPride 2014 Streetfair by taking over the TD Wellesley Stage where Canadian pop superstar, Carly Rae Jepsen will perform along with additional artists! So get ready to dance Toronto because to Carly Rae this will mean more than just another show, ‘As an artist who believes in equality for all people, it is an absolute honour to perform at WorldPride.’

Pride Toronto is a not-for-profit organization that hosts one of the largest Pride celebrations in the world! WorldPride is an international festival designed to educate both youth and adults on the history and culture of LGBT communities. Their ability to incorporate multiple musical genres including rock, pop, dance, hip hop, R&B, country, traditional, folk, retro and disco while helping to raise awareness makes this a perfect fit for MTV.

So come join us in the celebration for this free outdoor event, ‘MTV Presents: POP GOES PRIDE’ in downtown Toronto on Friday, June 27 and be sure to follow @phoebedykstra, @laurentoyota and @mtvcanada for updates on the event and additional artist announcements!
