Meet the Team! Carol and Laura!

Meet Carol!

“I heard about Toronto Pride many years ago. The best way for me to be part of the Dyke March was to join the Dyke March Team with my photography and communication skills. I am looking forward to helping the dyke community by building a stronger image for all of us.

As a traveler and destinations lover, if I could have any superpower it would be the teleportation. It would be easier for me to go back home to Brazil, and anywhere in the world I haven’t been!

When I’m not organizing the Dyke March I’m exploring Toronto as I’m still new to the city and working on my photography projects.”

Meet Laura!

After jumping ship on the academy and being in Take Back the Dyke in 2010, she leapt aboard the team to bring a radical politics, fierce dyke voices and a community focus back to the March. Laura loves her cats, books about queer witches and/or vampires, badass boots and purple. When not sending copious Dyke March emails, Laura works at Sherbourne Health Centre, plays soccer and rides her bicycle everywhere – even in the winter.”

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.
