The 2012 Dyke March is committed to celebrating the diversity of dykes and to demonstrating our beliefs, desires, and public presence. We strive towards claiming space for queer women and dyke-identified people through actively engaging our unique communities, finding strength in our differences and belonging in our similarities. Our politics are queer and anti-normative; feminist and trans-positive; and anti-oppressive. We embrace the history of the Dyke March as a radical, political demonstration of critical mass and recognize the March’s contemporary significance in a climate of political conservatism, homophobia, and sexism. We aim to be accountable to our dyke communities by upholding values of transparency, respect, and collaboration. We aim to engage allies through sharing knowledge and by fostering their active support. We aim to respond to critiques of Pride celebrations by organizing the March and its affiliated projects through a grassroots ethic and by maintaining our voices and visibility at Pride Toronto. We are here to be out and proud, to take a stand and revel in queer space, to disrupt, to defy, and to make a riot of a good time.
