This weekend is the first official weekend of the summer, but in Canada's biggest city an even bigger celebration is going down. Come Sunday, downtown Toronto will host one of the largest Pride parades in North America. It's where you'll find Tynomi Banks, one of Toronto's most prominent drag queens. She's put together the perfect playlist for any Pride Month celebration, and even shares which one of these tracks played a big role in her coming out story.

Below are some of her song picks:

The Weather Girls, It's Raining Men

Queen, I Want to Break Free

Ru Paul, Supermodel (You Better Work)

Produced by Vanessa Nigro
