The countdown is on! In less than 24 hours, Dyke March takes to the streets! And it’s not too late to join in. Need some ideas?
March (verb): to march in the Toronto Dyke March
1. to walk, strut, scream, sign, chant, roll and dance your way through city streets.
2. to take up space, take a stand.
3. to share the truly awesome energy of thousands of other queer women and dykes.
