Meet the Team! Liz

The Dyke March Toronto Team is already ramping up efforts for WorldPride 2014. This is a very important year for us: the Dyke March will be on a world stage and we want to make the most of this opportunity.

We are already getting started with new team members, new projects, and a new campaign fit for World Pride. Keep checking this space for updates on this year’s campaign, and our new team member bios!

“Hey folks,

My name is Liz and I’m incredibly happy to be part of the Dyke March Team and helping out with 2014 Dyke March during a year that is World Pride!  I love watching queer movies – they cheer me up, I am a self-professed techy, and I love to write.

To me, Pride is about sending an outright angry message as a united group built upon on common struggles.  It’s about making positive change and setting the standards high.

Got something to say?  Want to know what we’ve got to say?

Join us on June 28, 2014!”

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.
