Get excited for Dyke Day 2014!

Dyke Day is Saturday, June 28, 2014. That’s this week! The Dyke March Team couldn’t be more excited. Here’s what’s in store for you:

Meditation Mob led by Salimah Kassim-Lakha
11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
Allan Gardens

“A free form, free flow, free love groove thing.  Imagine a warm day and a silent gather of souls to a designated spot in Allan Gardens.  Not a word is spoken.  The vibe starts with a drum beat and then silence as hundred gather to pay homage to spirit, to self and to community.  The event is 60 mins in length and ends with a respect for the 4 elements, the four direction and the 4 ages.  A powerful beginning to a powerful Dyke March.”

“Raging Asian Women Taiko Drummers (RAW) plays big drums! And hard! RAW is a community arts collective of East and Southeast Asian Women in Toronto. We exist as a critical response and challenge to both systemic and internalized oppressions. Through performance, education, and community outreach, we seek to challenge, redefine and represent ourselves. Through collective membership, artistic creation, and active development, we carve space for self-expression, authentic engagement, community, and healing.”

We hope you join us for the best Dyke Day ever!

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.
