Yesterday’s World Pride Dyke March turned out to be the most participated Dyke March in my 4 years of covering it. It’s louder this year and the march route is longer (I think). I’ve never seen so many lesbians in my life before and this year is record-breaking. And as one male spectator (whom I overheard at the corner of Carlton and Yonge Streets) said, “My god, I’ve never seen too many boobs in my life in one day!” LOL… I guess, it’s his lucky day!
Dyke March is not a parade. It is a march/rally to raise awareness and issues in the lesbian/dyke community.
Due to searing heat and my urgent need to pee, I didn’t finish the march. Thus, I’ve taken only a few photos.
Dyke March, like Trans March and Pride Parade is political.
This is one of the reasons why there is Dyke March.
And also this.
There’s a rally before the march.
Dykes on Bikes always led the march.
Everyone is welcome.
No matter who you are.
Even those who can’t hear are welcome.
And those who just got married.
Fabulous? You’re absolutely welcome!
People of different faiths join in the march, too.
Even the gracious Abbey of the Divine Wood.
One came in a knitted umbrella full of luscious tits.
Some came with the love of their life.
And others joined with their family.
There’s love in the march.
And good camaraderie.
Oh, yeah, some nudity, too.
Did I mention that yarns are everywhere this year?
This banner is even made of yarns.
And another one.
Capes and wings are in this year.
And some other props, too.
See you again next year.
