World Pride Dyke March

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.

    I’m the girl on the red bike featured above. I’d live if you would send me any pictures you took of me if you can. Thanks so much.
