DykeMarch Toronto says
Dyke March Toronto is pleased to announce the first Community Meeting looking towards 2016. Come share your thoughts and ideas for the coming Pride Festival at the Gladstone Branch of the Toronto Public Library on November 22nd at 2pm.

Dyke March Toronto seeks to be accountable to our communities by upholding values of transparency, respect, and collaboration. Hosting Community Meetings is one of the ways the team works to fulfill this goal.


The meeting is open to all dyke-identified, trans*-identified and gender independent folks and allies. We seek to create a space that is as safe, inclusive and supportive as possible for people who are trans* and/or gender-independent or non-binary. We recognize that we live in a society full of power imbalances along lines of race, class, gender, sex, sexuality, age, physical ability, size and other diverse identities. Though these differences can feel intimidating, we also affirm that we share common experience that inspires us to fight these norms. As we work towards ending homophobia, lesbophobia, transphobia, misogyny, transmisogyny, and misogynoir in our society, we feel it is essential to build community and experience each other in new ways, loving and supporting one another.

If you are unable to attend, please send along your thoughts either via email (dykemarch@pridetoronto.com), postal service or hand delivery to: Dyke March Toronto, Pride Toronto, 55 Berkeley Street, Toronto, ON, M5A 2W5. Messages received by 5PM on Friday November 20th will be presented at the meeting.

The agenda will include, but is not limited to, discussions of:
• 20 years of Dyke March Toronto
• Community Partnerships and Engagment
• Craft Action and Libido

• ASL interpretation is available for this event
• This event is accessible to those using mobility devices
• Light snacks provided
• We ask that attendees please be scent/fragrance free to the extent that you are able

Please let us know how we can make this event more accessible for you.
