Hole-y Army Joins the Dyke March: You can carry a hole!

The Hole-y Army is a fantastically luscious carnival of colourful textile puppets, 100 diverse vagina/hole puppets, created by artist Coral Short that will be joining the Toronto Dyke March on June 30, 2012. You can support the Hole-y Army by carrying a hole in the March, donating online, or coming to Libido on Wednesday, June 27 at The Gladstone Hotel.


Artists Coral Short and Ariel Speedwagon still need LOTS of people to carry holes and make this amazing project happen. Any level of skill and ability works. If you can get from one end of the dyke march to the other, doing simple motions with an object, you can join this army. Remember that the March takes place in the sun whiel you are holding something. Scooter! Chair! Rolller skates! Tag team! They are both committed to this being as accessible as possible for people. If you have questions, ask.Β  You can also sign up to be a DRILL CAPTAIN! The simple choreography will be taught just beforehand. Then, you get to lead a small section of holey army and they’ll follow you! Write to ariel@arielspeedwagon.com if you are interested.

The arists also welcome all bodies who have ever IDed as a dyke past, present or future to join our radical love army. March with us for inclusion of all dyke bodies! The hole-y army celebrate holes of all shapes and colors and sizes on whatever gendered or genderless body they may inhabit, as hairy or shaved as they may be. Make your own hole, or carry a beautiful readymade hole! Click HERE to see 100 holes!

Donate HERE by Friday, June 22 to help us feed the 100 people of the Hole-y Army and transport holes. After June 22, paypal donations can be made directly Coral Short at coralshort@gmail.com.


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.
