The scenes shot on the streets for the gay pride parade were shot at the actual annual Toronto Gay Pride parade, which is the largest annual gay pride celebration in North America, drawing between 500,000 and 750,000 people each year, and which also allows full nudity for the parade participants, just as portrayed in the movie.

"The Baby Formula" is a low-budget independent 'comedy'. Two women want to have a baby together, so they find this scientific lab that will make a 'female sperm' from stem cells. I thought that was a pretty cool premise that could make for a pretty good film, but I was greatly disappointed.
It is shot in documentary style, but it's just too fantastical that the documentary angle does not work. Instead of even trying to come up with a sci-fi explanation they had the scientists make little 'jokes'. These so called jokes aren't even funny.
On top of claiming that this is laugh-out-loud funny, the marketing department also claims that this film is moving. The so-called 'moving' parts must be when the two women get angry with each other for various things as they go through this journey. I'm calling them women because even though they have names, they aren't characters - I don't know them, all I know about them is that they are having a baby. There is nothing to connect me to these women so I don't care about them at all.
I normally want to recommend independent films, but I can't do that this time. "The Baby Formula" is not worth being seen.
Check out "TiMER" (2009) instead - it's an independent romantic comedy with a sci-fi/fantasy angle and it's great.
