Dyke March Trans* Town Hall

Sunday April 19, 6-9 pm

Toronto Public Library, Parliament Branch

The Dyke March trans* town hall will be an opportunity for community members to share what they’d like to see for the Dyke March. While our other Dyke March town halls are open to all members of the dyke community, we are hosting this trans*-specific event in response to the need for specific attention to the ideas and concerns of trans* people.
There will be an introduction of Dyke March team members, an overview of our plans for this year’s march, and we will then open the floor to feedback and questions.

All trans* dykes are welcome and encouraged to attend.

Trans* dyke” refers to any person on the spectrum of gender identity who identifies with the label. We welcome dykes who identify as trans women, trans men, two spirit, third gender, intersex, genderqueer, genderfluid, non-binary, bigender, agender, and gender independent.

ASL will be available, the building is wheelchair accessible.

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.
