Meet the Team! Melissa

Meet Melissa!

“Hi my name is Melissa and this is my first year volunteering with the Dyke March. I am really excited to be a part of this year’s team and assist with outreach!

If I could have a superpower it would be the ability to manipulate time.

If I had to save a flavour of Neapolitan ice cream until the end what would it be? I wouldn’t, I usually mix them all together until it looks like soft serve.

When I’m not working on Dyke March related things, I enjoy spending time with my dog, friends, family and hanging at the cottage (even when its cold out) and finding interesting new events/places in the city to explore.”

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.
