Annual Trans Pride March
Stay tuned for more details about the 2015 Trans Pride March.
The 2013 Trans March was organized by trans* community members in collaboration with Pride Toronto's Trans Pride volunteers. Thanks to the efforts of the community, last year's Trans March took place on Yonge Street for the first time.
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, intersex, gender-independent and 2Spirit 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.
