When & Where
Dyke March TO
The Toronto Dyke March organizes the Dyke March and all affiliated events leading up to and during Toronto Pride. The committee is politically-engaged and community-oriented. We strive to operate within a feminist, queer, and anti-oppressive framework that is both collaborative and celebratory. We work toward creating spaces that allow the experiences, pleasures and identities of ALL queer women and dyke-identified folks to not only exist but also thrive.

2014 MISSION STATEMENT
The 2014 Toronto Dyke March works to created 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 energy to take action, a sense of community, and 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
