Toronto - As millions are expected to take part in the Gay Pride Parade, approximately 20,000 participated in the Dyke March in downtown Toronto. Thousands of people marched in various parts of the downtown core.
On Saturday, one day before the gigantic gay pride parade, thousands took part in the annual Dyke March that saw most lesbians march throughout the city of Toronto, which began at the corner of Bloor Street and Church Street.
Hundreds of others joined the march from Nathan Phillips Square where people carried signs that read, “Take back the dyke” and “We are fierce,” while others carried the rainbow pride flag, which was flying proudly in front of City Hall.
“Dykes on Bikes” were the leaders of the march on Yonge Street, south of Bloor Street, where they hoisted pride flags and some even hoisted Israeli flags. Hundreds in the crowd cheered in support.

“This is my favorite time of the year,” said Cynthia. “People love the Santa Claus Parade. People love the St. Patrick’s Parade. Others love to riot when world leaders are in town, just kidding. But this is my favorite event next to tomorrow’s parade.”
Organizers of the dyke march say that approximately 20,000 people would participate in the march.
