EVENTS: Dyke March organizers bring pedal power to World Pride

For almost 20 years, all kinds of dykes on all kinds of bikes have rolled down Yonge Street as part of Toronto’s annual Dyke March. But in 2013, bicycles took on a greater role than ever, thanks to a contingent formed by the queer-friendly Bike Pirates DIY shop and Dyke March organizers. The bicycles, almost 75 in total, formed a chorus of ringing bells between the roaring motorcycles that have led the event since it started, and the chanting marchers behind. The first Gay Pride Week in Toronto was in 1972, but it wasn’t until 1991 that the City of Toronto finally recognized the event officially.
