Why did you join the Dyke March?

To be part of such of this collected group of bright, diverse women has been a gift. I joined Dyke March 2014 as a means to not only give back to our community but to demonstrate to the world that Toronto’s Gay community is indeed extremely diverse and that lesbians are of all colours, creeds, shapes, sizes……many beautiful leaves on ONE TREE..

If you could have any superpower what would it be?

The art of invisibility….seriously how cool would that be ‘now you see me …now you don’t”

When you have a container of Neapolitan ice cream, what flavour do you save for last?

Milk Chocolate of course, it’s the yummiest…..savor it, let it slowly melt in your mouth….beyond delicious.

What TV show or movie is your guilty pleasure?

The ‘Women’ from 1939, it’s a movie about an eclectic group of high society friends who gain pleasure from each others down fall….it a testimonial to the fact that ‘women’ haven’t changed that much at all (lol). I can watch it over and over again.

What do you do when you’re not organizing the Dyke March?

I am blessed with 2 amazing kids so I am likely playing taxi driver, or house keeper, or nurse maid, or chef….walking my dog Mufasa – fitting in 60 hours of work somewhere and if time permits….a medium double double. Its no wonder I’m single.

“This is my second year with the Dyke March and I am super excited to be a part of the team! With World Pride coming this year I am looking forward to helping to facilitate a strong voice for the Dyke community as we are often lost in the Pride shuffle. I encourage all the Dykes out there to come together and join us on Dyke Day to let our voices be heard!”

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.
