This year’s 22nd annual Inside Out Toronto LGBT Film Festival kicked off last Thursday at their Launch Party at The Burroughes Building, a beautiful 7-storey structure built in 1907. The evening featured an impressive silent auction, music, booze, and an announcement of this year’s festival line-up. Of course we want to see everything and you should too!
