_MG_0253Thousands descended upon Allan Gardens in gentrifying area known as Moss Park – for the “Dyke March.”

The atmosphere in the park was part-festival, part-political rally. And for some it is the one day a year that they get to say hi and meets other members of their community.

With a wave of a baton the “Dyke March” was under way.

The long procession snaked it way out of Allan Gardens to the official parade route.

Curiosity abounded as onlookers congregated and stared at the marvel that was the “Dyke March.”

As the march made its way through downtown former MP and current mayoral candidate Olivia Chow received a bellowing chorus of cheers from the onlookers all while being flanked by a sea of purple-t-shirted supporters.

“Alot of people think of it as a big celebration or party,” Ngai, co-chair of Pride’s humanrights team. “We want to do is elevate everyone’s human rights.”
