The Toronto Dyke March is ramping up for 2012 and we need your help!

We are seeking dykes who would like to help organise this year’s March and affiliated events, including parties, panels, political actions, community art projects.

We are seeking queer women and dyke-identified trans people who would like to help organise this year’s March and affiliated events, including parties, panels, political actions, community art projects.

We need both experienced members and those seeking to develop new skills. We need help with event coordination, fund-raising and budgeting, graphic and web design, social media, marketing, blogging, community outreach, volunteer coordination, and political action.

There is more than one way to be involved:

1) Join the committee! DEADLINE: January 16, 2012 Send us a brief explanation of 1) why you would like to be involved, 2) your qualities and experience as well as 3) the skills you would like to develop and your areas of interest. [dykemarchto@gmail.com] Feel free to follow this template: http://docs.com/G187 Applicants are encouraged to self identity. Queers of colour, Indigenous dykes and trans folk strongly encouraged to apply.

2) Join the street team! Ongoing sign up January through June 2012. Email us to sign up and we’ll add you to the list. [dykemarchto@gmail.com] Help us when you can with postering, baking, running and attending events, and marshalling the March. Come to our open committee meetings, bring a friend, see what we’re up to, and share your thoughts. Help us plan and develop our mission statement and goals. Allies welcome!

3) Join our online community! Follow us on twitter (@dykemarchto). Help us by retweeting. Like our Facebook community page (DykeMarch Toronto) and comment on, like and share our postings.

4) Celebrate Pride with us! MARCH! Come to the Rally and Dyke March on June 30, 2012! March, strut, scream, sign, chant, roll and dance your way through the city streets. Take up space. Take a stand. Share some time with friends and make some new ones. Come to the other Dyke Pride events we are running or supporting.
