On the streets at Toronto’s Trans March and Dyke March

Scenes from two of Pride's most political events

This past weekend, thousands turned out on the streets of Toronto for the Trans March and Dyke March — to protest, to call for change, to stand together. Each year, the marches are among the more political of Pride events, harkening back to the festival’s roots as a march for change and equality.
