God Loves Uganda: Dallas and Laura are convinced that this is a must see for EVERYONE! “God Loves Uganda is a searing examination of the fine line that separates faith from fanaticism.

Lesbian Shorts: Could I Be Your Girl?: “First glances, first kisses, first dates. As this collection of sexy and brave shorts proves, when it comes to the rush of new romance, there are no simple rules of attraction.” Laura, Lluvia, Rain, Dallas, and Aanya want you to see this.

Wednesday, May 29 at 7:30.

About Dyke March Toronto

Mission: The 2015 Toronto Dyke March works to create dyke-centred spaces because we need — and demand — 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.
