Mad Pride - since when?
The first Toronto Pride event for mad people was held in the fall of 1993. It was called Psychiatric Survivor Pride Day.
The name changed to Mad Pride in 2002 and events are now held in the summer to correspond with Bastille Day (during the French Revolution, citizens stormed the Bastille to liberate prisoners and mad people) and International Mad Pride Day on July 14.
Mad Pride is celebrated annually around the world.
