TORONTO – It began with the rumble of motorcycles — the annual Dyke March hit city streets Saturday.
Women and trans people in the LGBTQ community took over city streets for the march.
The event is not a parade, its organizers say. The event serves as a political demonstration to defy stereotypes and celebrate the strength and diversity of LGBTQ women and trans people.
The march began at 2 p.m.
As Pride festivities take over downtown, city streets will be filled with rainbow flags and smiles.
The massive Pride parade begins Sunday at 2 p.m. and is expected to draw one million to the city.
