Annual Trans* Pride March

Annual Trans* Pride March

SHOW YOUR SUPPORT FOR OUR TRANS* COMMUNITIES!

Date:  Friday 26 June 2015 

The Trans* March is one of the largest events of the trans communities in the GTA. Since it began in 2009, the Trans* March has sought to provide a place for trans identified people to rally, to stand up and come together in solidarity. It's a grass-roots community focused event, providing safe space for trans people.

All trans* identified people, their friends and allies are welcome to march. Trans* women of colour and people with different abilities are encouraged to lead the march and set the pace for everyone else.

WHO TRANS* PRIDE REPRESENTS

Trans* is an umbrella term that refers to all of the identities within the gender identity spectrum which includes but is not lilmited to those community members who identify as transgender, transsexual, intersex, transvestite, genderqueer, genderfluid, gender independent, non-binary, third gender, two-spirit, and bigender.

Trans* Pride supports all these ways of being, and seeks to provide a safe place for anyone whose gender or sexuality doesn't fit within the narrow definitions society has given us.

Want to March?

There is no registration required for marching groups or individuals; only vehicles must register. Please note, there are a limited number of spaces for vehicles. Registration for the 2015 MArch will be online in January 2015.
