Missed the Dyke March Town Hall? Here’s a recap via Twitter posts!

The Dyke March Town Hall took place Tuesday, May 1 at Buddies in Bad Times Theatre. With a strong turnout, we discussed a whole bunch of ideas on how to better engage the community in what the March stands for, what we do and how we can get more of our community members involved, including allies.

The Dyke March Committee will be increasing its presence at various community events throughout Toronto from now up until the March on June 30, so please feel free to chat with us about how we can continue to reach out far and wide. In the meantime, catch up on what was discussed at the Town Hall by visiting the link below:

About Dyke March Toronto

Mission: The 2015 Toronto Dyke March works to create dyke-centred spaces because we need β€” and demand β€” more visibility within the Pride Toronto Festival. Goals: Our goal is to organize a political and celebratory march, created by and for dykes across the spectrum. We need to create our own space to be political and visible. Dyke visibility is important because we are not fully represented in the Pride movement or in mainstream society. The Dyke March celebrates our diversity and demonstrates the power of our communities. We hope the Dyke March leaves you with the energy to take action, a sense of community, and an appreciation for your own unique dyke glory! Values: The Dyke March values collective organizing to give dykes who are historically oppressed a platform. These include, but are not limited to, trans folks, Indigenous folks, folks of colour and folks with disabilities. We see this as necessary to create social change.
