10×10 is a photography exhibit that swept Toronto Pride on the eve of Canada Day, showcasing the talents of queer photographers David Pike, Joey Bruni, InkedKenny, Patrick Lightheart, Tania Anderson, Paul Buen, John Caffery, Rannie Turingan, G. Elliot Simpson and Tanja-Tiziana. In attendance at The White House (277.5 Augusta Avenue) on Thursday night—and modelling for the hot photographers—were actor and writer Paul Bellini, comedian Richard Ryder, interior designer Tommy Smythe and short fiction writer Shawn Syms, to name a few. Each photographer was given the task of shooting 10 portraits of queer up-and-comers and fixtures, including A.A. Bronson and Nina Arsenault by Pike and Bruce LaBruce by Elliot Simpson, all curated by artist James Fowler. Check out our launch party coverage, with a peek at some of the portraits on display after the jump.

10×10 will be on display at The White House until July 8.
