John Barrowman Does Toronto Pride


John Barrowman, the out and proud star of Torchwood (the closest thing we have right now to Buffy the Vampire Slayer), has been spending some time in Canada hanging out at Niagra Falls, working on a project called How Do You Solve a Problem Like Maria? and participating in the 2008 Toronto Pride Parade which took place yesterday … here are a couple pictures of John whooping it up on his float:

I love Torchwood and I love John Barrowman. Darion is the one who got me hooked on the amazing TV show and I can’t even tell you how much I love John’s outspoken pride. I am not surprised in the least that he would choose to participate in Toronto’s Pride Parade whose theme this year was Unified! (possibly taking a cue from the Democrats here in the US?) Folks in LA might want to take note that John will be making a personal appearance at Book Soup on Sunset Blvd. to sign copies of his autobiography Anything Goes on July 23. Unfortch, I will not be able to attend (I’ll be traveling) but I know there are gads of Torchwood fans out there who might not want to miss this opportunity.

    Torchwood is AWESOME and so is John Barrowman. He’s one of my most favorite people ever. I’m telling ya, Trent. If you like Torchwood you HAVE to watch Doctor Who! That’s where John got his start in the series! Plus it’s just as great!

    Yea Toronto!!!!!

    I love his singing, too (and he’s on iTunes!)! JB is so awesome. I LOVE how he plays Capt. Jack. Moreso when he was first introduced in Doctor Who, because he was soooo flirty. And the bit in ep 13 of Season 4 of Dctor Who where Donna first sees him is hilarious!

    I love his singing too. His releasing his second album later this year called music, music, music, and Garey Barlow from take that has written a track for the album too, can’t wait for it!!

    p.s. i would love for more fans to join my JB appreciation group on facebook “john barrowman appreciation society”
