“Hey Everyone,

I’m Kaddy and I’m new to the Dyke March this year. I remember my first Dyke March, and as a young queer from a sort-of small town, it was super empowering and exhilarating to see. I am really excited to be a part of the March this year and look forward to finally getting involved with the queer community of Toronto.  In my spare time I enjoy writing by candlelight, reading super long fantasy books, and cosplaying my favourite video game and movie characters.”

Meet Andi!

If you could have any superpower what would it be?
Teleportation. I see it as a solution for both chronic lateness and awkward social situations.

What TV show or movie is your guilty pleasure?
Legally Blonde.

Who is one of your dream Dyke March rally speakers or dyke heroes?
Leah Lakshmi Piepnza-Samarasinha, and all other badass femmes.

What do you do when you’re not organizing the Dyke March?
Cuddle my fur babies, make crafts, think about femme identities, and spend way too much time on the Internet – anything that comforts my introvert heart and supports my procrastinating tendencies.

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.
