Registration for the 2014 WorldPride Dyke March is now open! Click here to register to march!We aim to create dyke-centred spaces all year long, and Dyke Day is no exception. Our goal is a March that welcomes all self-identified dykes and keeps the focus on dyke experiences — this includes the experiences of all lesbian, bi, and queer women, as well as Two Spirit, trans, and gender-variant dykes from across the spectrum.If marching with a non-dyke-identified person improves your experience, we encourage you to invite them to march with you. We know how important having our children, friends, partners, parents, and other allies around us can be, and we want you to have the best March experience possible. Ultimately, we want dykes calling the shots.
If you are an ally who hasn’t been invited to march with a dyke, but still want to participate, don’t worry — we have a role for you! Help us make sure dyke voices and experiences are at the centre of Dyke Day. Ask us about our Ally Project, or come cheer us on!
The 2015 Toronto Dyke March works to create dyke-centred spaces because we need — and demand — more visibility within the Pride Toronto Festival.
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!
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.
