Dyke Day is only two months and ten days away!

DATE: June 28, 2014
RALLY: 1:30 p.m.to 2:00 p.m., Allan Gardens, 19 Horticultural Ave, Toronto, Ontario, Canada

The Route

The route for the 2014 Dyke March has changed significantly for the first time since 1996. This year, we are reversing: we will start in Allan Gardens, head west along Carlton Street, turn right to head north up Yonge Street, and turn right on Charles Street to end in George Hislop Park.

Starting in Allan Gardens gives marchers lots of space and shade to gather, make signs, and take in some badass dyke speakers. Lining up on Carlton Street is a great spot for spectators and allies — you will be able to see the energy and excitement of the start of the March! We will end again in a green space to take in a powerful performance together by RAW! 

Accessibility information to come. Stay tuned for the rally speaker line up!

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.
